After trashing my rear wheel at the weekend crashing I'm after a decent wheelset to go on my Rocky Mountain Blizzard or a good rear hub I can rim up into a wheel.

The specs I'm ideally looking at for the wheels are..

26 wheel size
6 bolt hubs (ideally something good i.e. Hope, DT Swiss)
Mavic or DT rims....straight.
9mm QR front and rear

As far as the hub goes I'm looking for something good quality i.e Hope, Ringle or DT Swiss with 32 holes and in black.

Anyone got anything suitable?

Cheers

Neil

Those look nice, not sure if silver would go with my bike though as rest of parts are black.

May get back to you though if I can't find anything decent
