I'm upgrading the front wheel, which is currently a 'WTB LaserDisc Trail - Double Wall' rim, with 'Shimano Deore Disc M525' hub set up.

I was originally set on'Halo Freedom' rims with 'Hope Pro II QR' hubs, but I have also been considering 'Spank Subrosa' and 'DT Swiss 5.1' rims. I'm stickng with the 'Hope' hubs, but I know that Merlin have some good deals with the 'DT Swiss 5.1' rims, so now I'm leaning a little more that way.

I've been looking at 'Chain Reaction' and 'Merlin' with regards to the wheel build. Any suggestions regarding rim choice, and any other good wheel builders, would be appreciated.
