I'm looking to replace the wheels on my Salsa Vaya with something fairly light and lively for use on the road and a bit of CX (but not heavily laden touring).

Needing 135mm rear spacing and disc compatibility (mild preference for 6-bolt over centrelock).

My current throught is Mavic Open Pro 32-hole rims on Shimano XT M756 hubs. Seems to be a reasonable balance of cost and goodness.

Any advance on that? What are other people using? Any ideas appreciated.

Cheers

Jon

i'd keep the open pros, maybe drop to 28 holes and get some nice light and strong cx-ray spokes.

not a cheap wheelset though  19
