I'm in the market for some new disc wheels - budget 175 stretching to 200. Not bought wheels for a while and unsure where to start (back in the day it was almost always XT hubs and 231's!)

I generally ride trailcentre and XC mucking about - and am not the most graceful of rider :oops:

Yeah Agree with cannondale king, all Hope proII hubs are fully serviceable. I'm running Pro II's on Mavic En 321 rims which are more trail/all mountain rims and had no problems what so ever.
Hope do the Pro II's on Stans rims and get really good reviews.

Also try Superstar components they are getting a good rep for there wheels. Try go for hubs with sealed cartridge bearings as these will take more abuse and are easier to service.

Pro II's with the correct adaptor can run any axle front and back (9mmQR, 15mm and 20mm Maxle etc).
