I'd be interested to know how they "died". Did the hub give up? How long had you had them?
I picked up a pair last year here on the Classifieds for $175 and have really liked them. They stay true, take a hit, don't flex, and mounting up regular tires tubeless has been a snap even with just a floor pump.So I'm hoping they will last awhile.
I would lean toward Mavic 819 with Hope Pro 2 hubs. From Chain Reaction Cycles you could get them ~$420 last I checked with free shipping. Be aware of customs though-I just got tapped for $52 on a $400 dollar item. Hubs have long term proven reliability, are rebuildable, easy to get parts and they aren't expensive, easily maintained, and they're just solid.
