WTT: 26" XC v-brake wheel for disc wheel
Since I am having so much luck with my Nobis Inspired WTT thread, I figured I try my luck with a bike wheel.
26" front XC mtb wheel, XTR hub (not current gen) laced to a new Mavic x517 ceramic rim. Pewter hub, black rim, silver DT swiss spokes. 3x pattern. The XTR hub had about half a seaon's use... I built this wheel up as a spare race wheel for my xc full susp, but its been hanging in my garage as I pretty much only ride and race my single now, which is disc... I haven't even ridden the wheel as built.
26" xc disc front wheel... black hub, black rim ideal. Ideally a CK hub, with ISO (this would make a matched set with my rear wheel). Needs to support the 6-bolt avid rotors. Hope Pro2 another favorite. think light and strong and serviceable.

^^^ agreed. shot in the dark. BUT, it does happen. Last year my friend decided to go retro and run v-brakes on his single to shed additional grams, and he was unloading a disc wheel and building a rim brake wheel. To bad I wasn't more visionary at the time.
