I have just brought myself a Trek Fuel EX8 2010, and thinking of getting rid of the Bontrager Rhythm wheelset already on there....? Was reading MBR and they reckon that's the downside to the bike, cr@p wheels!!!

So, any idea's....? (Budget £200-300)

I'll mainly be doing a bit of everything, XC, Trail, Wales here an there so they've gotta be good long term strong wheels that can cope with some tough stuff!

People have recommended the following:-

* Shimano XT complete wheelset (£250)
* Hope 2 with mavic 819 rims (£309)
