Looking at upgrading my rear wheel on a budget and wondering if the transition revolution will be a good option. My main question is will it be strong enough in the right places? Will the hub hold up to the higher torque of xc riding? Also, will the 36 hole be overkill for a 240# clyde doing xc/trail riding? I am also having a hard time finding a weight on either the 10mm qr or regular qr.
here are the 2 options. I like the 10mm QR for use in a sliding dropout Inbred, but dont know if it is worth the weight.

The Transition hub is basically the same as the Azonic Outlaw hub which has been a clyde favorite for many years. It is a very solid 3 pawl (nice wide pawls) steel freehub body with 22 engagement points (again large ratchet teeth). 36 spokes is not overkill at all, in fact it will make for a solid wheel.

The Version 1 is around 550g but that includes the solid 10mm axle, the version 2 drops at least 100g (including the QR).
