I'm planning on building up a new frame with my old components, but the frame that I'm going to has horizontal dropouts. I need to get a new rear wheel, something with a solid axle. I want something pre-built, no rims. Anyone know where I can get a beefy rim with whatever hub for under 200? Right now I'm leaning toward a Halo SAS with Diatech hub for 140. Thanks :rant:

I have a set of Azonic Outlaw wheels for sale for $200 if you're interested. Front and rear can be converted from QR to thru-axle (front 20mm/rear bolt-on). All black.

SAS are pretty beefy (maybe too much?), I've seen quite a few people leaning more towards their Tornado, which is also around $140 or so (at ride-thisdotcom I believe). Another to consider is the Atomlab G.I. wheel.... I have the front wheel, and the rear rim (built to another hub), but I have "heard" about their hubs having issues, but no direct experience, so I can't say much about that...

SAS is very beefy. The alloy is a little soft, so if you can't figure out to pump up your tires, don't complain if you flat spot them. I've been beating the hell out of mine for some time now. The white powdercoat is getting pretty beat up, but they're still round and true.
