I opted for the xt hubs/717 rims. Reliable hubs and no spares/spoke issues in future years :) Plus the xt skewers are great (functionally) :D

Much as I like the Cross rides. I can't find any non disc in silver.

XT's I think for me.

Also looking at Fulcrum Metal 5 for £135 anyone tryed these? They get good reviews.

I have them on my RM Slayer and did the Alps with them. They're pretty good.

Here you can find them in silver. They're suitable for Disc AND V-brake

That is a good price. Thanks for the heads up.

The duel breaking wheels are 200grams heavier than the V-brake only model
