    Good discount. Still a a lot of money though for a set ot MTB wheels IMO. I'd get some on-one wheels or some hand mades from Merlin myself.

    £250's not bad for some UST wheels weighing 1,650g though. Despite being "factory" they've stayed 100% tight and true too. I'm fairly light though (11-12 stone), i've heard poeple say they flex a bit if you're heavier - probably due to the 24 spokes.

    I reckon Mavic XM819's on XT hubs would come out close to £250 wouldn't they?
