    As above really. I would like to use the hubs I have now but the rest is going. What do you think would make a good light weight wheel setup? Thanks

    Thanks for the info. I tryed the search but its not always that great on this forum. What spokes would you say would go well? I am looking at the super light DT ones but dont know if they will be ok for DH work.
