Ok, looking for a wheelset for my 6point build.

Needs:
- 20mm TA front hub
- 150 x 12 mm rear hub
- disc ready (duh)

Wants:
- UST or tubeless ready (not required)
- not super burly { i hesitate to use the word "light" :) }

Any opinions? Or is there a wheel resource out there that compares and contrasts?

Thanks in advance.

Been looking at NukeProof and Hope at Chain Reaction lately myself. Both have the configurations you want and you can get both with your rim/spoke choice for ~$400 or so. The nukeproofs you should be able to get under $400. Don't know much about the re-birth of NP but I like their rear hub especially with 6 cartridge bearings on the 150mm and they appear to be easy to take care of maint wise. Not much on the net to read on them as far as long term reliability etc.

Factory for sure, building wheels is expensive when you don't have your own spoke shop.

As for budget, i'm willing to pay for good stuff but i only buy discounts, and i've got until mid-summer to look for deals.
