Road disc wheelset advice

by BigDummy   December 30, 2011  

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.

i'd stick with mavic open pro rims built round some Hope hubs if it were me.

how about some tune hubs?

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 Devil

Those hubs are a leetle teeny beet out of my league Dave. But awesome.
