Just got done RE-building my King wheelset... used to be King ISO with DT 14/15 on Mavic X317's... now same King ISO hubs - DT SuperComps - and Mavic XM819 rims..... they came out GREAT! I'm headed to the Garage now to mount the Cassette, rotors and tires to take them for a ride!

Thanks for checking it out!

I was expecting to see the Spicer!
Yeah - welll - umm - I stole the hubs from the Spicer to rebuild for this....bad huh?!?!? ...lol I wanted to switch the X317s out to the XM819's and I also picked up a set of DT Onyx Disc hubs on DT XR4.1d rims cheap but they were the Shimano splined rotors. So with the splined rotors and the kings on the SS - I'd have to readjust brakes all the time because they were slight different (pad drag on the disc's) - so I swapped the XTR XM819s to the SS and that way I have 2 sets of wheels for the SS... The Kings will have to suffer on the geary for now... I posted a pic of the Spicer all done up in the SS forum last week - got my Jericho XTR Ring and other stuff - so it's ready to ride....

Sweet bike! What does it weigh?

Nice wheels aswell:)
Weighs about 24lbs 4oz last time I checked..... had a few parts changes - but I know it could be lighter with some other changes....

Thanks!

Aaahhh...that is why you're selling the Onyx wheels. I was thinking of getting Kings, but I can't justify the price as of now. That is why I bought the Onyx wheelset off you on Ebay...

I really need that wheelset to get my disc conversion complete on my Rocky Mountain. So if you could, please ship them to me!! :) I wouldn't mind riding my V-brakes for another month or so or whenever the wheelset gets here in the mail.

Thanks
