I'm thinking either Crossmax XLs or build a wheelset using Hope Bulb hubs and Mavic 717 Rims.

I have just had a pair of wheels made; Mavic XM819 Disc Rims, DT Swiss Comp spokes, alloy nipples, and Chris King hubs for my 04 Dawg. The CK hubs won't allow you to hit the dollar amount you want to spend but, what I wanted to comment on was the Mavic 717. I went with the XM 819 because it is much stronger with a marginal weight penalty compared with the 717. I had problems previously with other rims and wanted something that would stand up to some abuse and so far the XM819 have been great. My friend just ordered a set of XM819 laced to Hadleys for his Jamis XLT2.0. If weight is not a huge concern but strength is, then I would consider the All Mountain XM819 with your choice of other wheel components to get to that dollar amount you have budgeted for.robdamanii said:http://www.jensonusa.com/store/product/WH609A04-Shimano+Xt+756+Rhynolite+Xl+Dt+Wheelset.aspx
You're talking about those I assume? They aren't exactly light by any means. And in no way do I want anything to do with shimano hubs.
We are not talking about a freeride bike here he's concerned about weight, Deetracks are not a choice. I'd have to say go with the Crossmaxx XL's Rob.mzungo said:Bulbs are preaty heavey hard core stuff ..how about the new Deetracks from mavic ...or hope pro's on 325 rims ...thats whats on my Dawg.
