Hi,

I am looking for a 29er racing wheelset with good compromise between durability and weight as I may use it for regular riding as well.

I am thinking about a set with Chris King Hubs and Stan Arch 29er rims. I do XC riding/racing on a hard tail. I am 5’11 and 160 lbs. Mostly ride of flat terrain, with roots and sand (Texas).

Is this a good build for what I am looking for? Should I consider a lighter front rim? Or entire different setup?

Last, please give me the name of a few reputable/quality and price competitive online wheel builders.

Thanks.

Agreed... my race wheelset is American Classics w/ 355s. Comes in somewhere around 1550 g sans rotors, hub, tires, etc. ACs w/ Crests, or DT240s w/ Crests would be good options for race wheelsets. IMO, chris king hubs, while really good, are a little heavy for a "race wheelset," unless your race wheelset is your only wheelset.
