Title: I need a new disc wheel
Post by: humunuku on May 21, 2012, 07:17:56 pm
I need to get a new rear wheel for my bike and I need help!

any suggestions on a disc hub?
any suggestions for a disc rim?

it needs to be 700c, disc brake compatible and very durable (for a 170lb rider carrying 50lb).
any suggestions? 

thanks a bunch

Jon

How much are you willing to spend?

the minimum i'm expecting to pay is $250 -$300, I'd pay more (maybe up to $500) if it really is going to perform that much better

My favorite combo is a White Industries MI5 hub with a Velocity Aerohead Touring Disc rim, 32H, double butted spokes, brass nipples. I am 185 pounds, have carried over 100 pounds of gear without any issue. I abuse these wheels quite badly (jump off curbs, ride down stairs) and have zero problems. I do have the tension about maxed out for the rims.
