    I'm undecided on hubs selection.Which is the better hub Hope Pro 2 (from Pricepoint) or Halo Spin Doctor (from Universal Cycle) these will mount to Sun Ringle MTX Grey Camo Rims with DT Swiss Spokes. These will go with the above wheel combo on a 05' Giant Reign 2 for Aggressive Trail and Medium freerideing.

    Hopes are reliable, light, and easy to service. I don't know anything about the Halos so I can't say anything about them.

    Get the Hopes, proven reliabity for DH and easy to maintain and work on. They can be had for a good price on EBay stores as well.
