I recently got a Giant XTC 29er, and am looking for some new wheels.
Am ~70kg and these wheels will be used primarily for racing. Will be riding tubeless.
Have a deal with a LBS that stocks Mavic, Specialised, Hope, Stans, Shimano, Giant, amongst others, but they're the main brands I can see that venture into wheel stuff.
Could spend RRP £900 max.
Thus, I'm looking at Mavic Crossmax SLRs, STs, Specialized's Roval Control 29ers, Stans ZTR 29er Race Gold and potentially Giant PXCR-1. Love the look of the American Classic Race wheels with their wide rims, but unfortunately the LBS don't stock AC's.
Has anybody any experience with any of these wheels, or any other ideas?
The Roval carbon wheels look like a good job, but then the aluminium Stans are lighter and less expensive, but am I compromising quality?

" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; Carbonal chinese wheels, but basically got screwed over with waiting times and false promises, so have cancelled the order.
