Looking for some replacement 29er xc wheels. Looking at crest mk3, ryde trace and dt Swiss 1500's. Though having seen some reviews raving about decent carbon wheels I am tempted. Though as Mtb'ing is a bit of a sideline to the road for me the performance gain would need to be worth while. Any opinions greatly received.

Check out the light bicycle carbin rim in built up options, good value and very few reported issues with the builds/rims.

im running light bicycle rims, 32 spoke count, at 88-95 kilo im not lightweight and most of the trails i ride are fairly rough, i had these rims for 3 years now, i laced a different front hub so i could use a different fork and im happy to report there are great rims. there strong wide and reasonable light, i paid 165 per rim, i believe 24 mm internal and they came in at roughly 390 (i think it was 385 and 390) grams. they have lighter rims on offer as we speak and i would not hesitate to buy them again.
