Got Hope/Mavic on my 5 and Hope (Pro 2 front)/Superstars (superleggera rear)/Mavic on my Clockwork.
Can't tell the difference and can't fault either.

Only problem with Hope is there's no going back afterwards. Everything else just sucks.

The negative reviews on the superstar hubs are for the Superleggera hubs not the Switch Evo. I'm thinking of getting the Evo's for one of my bikes. I have Hopes too and they're good, but a bit costly

I have the Sunringle jumpingfleas and they are a super hardcore tough as nails hub, will outlast Hope 10 times, but are twice as expensive. Also nobody has mentioned DT Swiss rims?? the 400 or 500 depending what you want to do with them.
I just think Hope is the obvious choice... Try something a little diffrent.

I've been hearing good things about Fulcrum wheels, been pondering a set of Red Metal 5's for my XC bike.
