which would you do? convert existing kinlin/white clinchers to tubeless...or spend $$$ for a new tubeless wheelset?
i'm still old school with a 26er mtb, and canti brakes ;-)
williams is great, i have heard mixed reviews with the stock seal bearings, but they are decent. I would go a little something like this
Velocity 23mm Major Toms (the 23mm rim width give GREAT handling on off cambers)
Shimano Hubs or Velocity
DT swiss revolution spokes with brass nipples, durable AND light...
there are more posts about cheap AND light wheelsets, I am not sure about durability....
