  1. So before posting this I took a read at some past chatter about new wheel sets (all sizes) for MTBing , with the hope of getting some clarity for my new 650b dirt killer. All it did was open up more options (which is great) add more technical muscle to what I didn't know (rim width etc) and lastly realising that the bigger brands may not be all that they are cracked up to be. What I would like to know from other Hubbers is where would a laymen start to look for a new set of wheels should he have a Giant Anthem Advanced. I originally looked at Mavic crossmax SLT but judging by some rider comments their may be better options to consider in a lower / similar price range. Most of my riding is done in JHB south (Thaba Trails and Rietvlei occasionally) and my bike takes a good beating over the rocky terrain on most weekends. The end goal is to have a good set of tubeless wheels to use to train with as well as do the occasional race after a 3 year sabbatical. Again, after reading through a few threads I'm not sure what the best option would be for my anthem - hope hubs + custom built crests vs off the shelf rims vs just keeping the standard rims, etc etc. Can anyone shed some insight?
  2. Hi Hubbers I managed to pull the wool over my wife's eyes long enough to get her to agree to me buying a new bike . I'm going for the Scott Spark 910 and am considering changing the stock Syncros wheels for Mavic Crossmax ST's. Not sure this is necessary though - can anyone advise me on the Syncros wheels? Would I benefit significantly with the Mavic's? The specs: Syncros XR2.0 rims with DT Swiss Aero Comp spokes and Syncros XR2.0 CL / 12 x 142 / RWS hub (made by DT Swiss). I weigh 90kgs and do exclusively cross-country/marathons. Any advice would be appreciated.
