Hi,

I can get some nice wheels cheap. These here: http://www.torpedo7.com.au/products/ACWHSNNV1
But not from there (Can get them below £100 and brand new)

Riding will be doing on them is allot of trails, in woods and general trails on gravel/mud etc (some aggressive type XC stuff) and allot of road riding also. (On hardtail Scott Scale) So just wondering will these hold up okay with 24H?

Thanks.

    If they are built correctly and you are nor too heavy they should hold up fine. My front wheel has 18 spokes!

    Okay thanks for the info. I am quite heavy at 93kg, would this be a problem? (Will be loosing weight though guess will go down to around 85kg) They are well built from what I have read.

    Still should be ok. I am 85kg, my Crossmax Enduro hold up fine. There is a fair bit of weight to the wheels you list, so will have strong stiff rims.

    I've been looking at Crossmax's also, but you've gave me enough confidence to go ahead with those wheels. Thanks again for the info helps allot.

    I got the wheels and they are nice sepcially for the price I paid for them (Brand new for £90 of a friend) hubs are smooth and they seem very well built. Not the lightest but can't complain at this price.

    I was considering getting Mavic Crossride 2011 (24h) as they on sale at CRC right now and would of got them if I had not found these Vetrax D2 going cheap I think, hopefully they hold up nicely.
