Thanks, I did look for other wheel builders, but couldnt find anything without it getting crazy expensive, and I am trying to do this on a low budget if at all possible, but know that cheap, reliable and fast doesnt really exist.
The colour isn't an issue as my front 29" is a silver mavic anyway and so i would like to match the rear to it.
I dont know if it is a problem that i also only need the rear wheel rather than a pair as i already have a front wheel.
i presume you cant do this in teh open, but could you give me a price for an xt built rear then? would it be possible for the hub to be black with silver rims/spokes
