Nice win there. Agree there's no way that its prototype stuff. When Dirt did a feature on the prototype stuff Gwin was running none of it was coloured or branded as Saint, just plain silver.
I'd go with an EX729...great rim. I ran them on my Demo 9 and they took a proper beating.the D321's that I've had in the past have always been good too.
I had the Saint brakes of hat era and they were great, easy to bleed, powerful and never needed any TLC.
Yeah,i looked at the 721 and the 729 and the latter certainly looks to be more robust.In my own choice i'd go for double eyelets
and machined sidewalls also add to the rigidity.Got to get this choice correct.
I dont see this set being something thats passed through a few hands without being broken up so i reckon the seller is responsible for putting it on.
The depths some people will stoop
Now just have to think on whose spoke and what gauge to use,probably not butted
