I have to replace the wheels on my Whyte e 120xt and was wondering what to go for i don’t want to spend any more than £300 for the pair so what would you recommend. I was also trying to avoid the shimano wheels sets as i find the bearing just don’t last to well.
I also need to replace the cassette at the same time and am looking at the xt cassette or sram pg990 .Which one is better or lasts longer again I seem to get heavy wear on the xt currently, but then I am using a sram chain is this causing accelerated wear?

Thanks for any recommendations
Tony

SRAM will probably outlast Shimano. Depends also on how you are combining your gears though - if wear is on smaller sprockets there won't be much in it.
