I'm really liking my recent old-school 26", rigid SS acquisition. The wheels on it are performing reasonably well right now (X517 SUP rims, Specialized hubs, butted spokes), but the hubs are very old, and the rims have a lot of miles on them. So I thought I'd put together a new lightweight build on a budget.

Here's my current thinking:

Stan's ZTR 355 28-hole ABT rims: 375g, $40 each
Paul WORD rear SS hub: 200g , $94
Paul fhub front hub: 128g, $82
Paul bolt on axles: 25g/hub, $0
Pillar PSA X-TRA 1422 spokes: 4.7 g, $14.50/8
Alloy nipples: 0.32g, $2.50/8
Rox UL tape: 4g/wheel, $9

Rear weight: 745g

Front weight: 673g

Total weight: 1418g including bolt-on axles and rim tape (1370g, wheels alone)
Total cost: $401 (not including shipping costs)

How would these stand up to light trail/long distance riding with a 180lb rider? Any other thoughts or ideas, much appreciated.

For the small weight penalty I'd stick with brass nipples, otherwise as long as you are confident in your wheel building - go for it!
