decided to switch to a 29er. i weigh 150 and ride pretty light. ive always raced with standard rims/stan's strip and standard tires, very few problems.

so, i guess im looking for a light, tubeless set-up.

How about Stan's Crest? You're well within the weight limit, and it looks like a nice rim for you skinny folks.
Did I happen to mention that I hate you skinny folks?

I've got a Stan's Crest set and I weigh 180#. If money allows, go with Stan's Race29...if I only weighed less than 170 and had a few extra bucks...

I recently had a set of Crests/American Classic hubs/Supercomp set for my 29er HT built up by Larry at Mountain High Cyclery.
Primarily a race day set for endurance races. I'm a bit over 170 lbs.

Total weight w/ yellow tape (but no valve stems--Larry was out of stock) = 1522g

This is my first go with American classic hubs (and Crests for that matter) so I can't speak to the long term durability quite yet. I have had quite a few sets (both MTB and Road) built with 240 hubs and they really are a fantastic hub.
For an all around training/racing set I would personally go with the 240's. My everyday training wheelset is a set of Arch/Supercomp/240's

The only reason I went with the AmClas is I wanted the lightest wheelset for race day only for my weight.

thanks for the responses.

i've got some experience with a 240 hub, its been great, never any issues. looks like its a pretty obvious choice as to which direction i should go.
