    Alloy disc clincher wheels

    Hello all-

    I'm building my first disc CX/Gravel bike (2015 Crux carbon frame) after 30+ years of canti brakes on CX bikes and I would appreciate some wheel suggestions for the build. I like the Zipp Course 30s but they are above my budget since I want to get two identical sets of wheels. In a nutshell, I'm looking for something that is alloy, clincher, 100/135 QR, moderately wide (will work with tires from 28 - 40), and tubeless for CX/gravel or can easily be converted. I've had great luck with the Velocity A23 wheels on my canti bikes but would like to find something that has a 30-40 mm rim depth (like the Felt TTR rims but wider). I weigh 180 lbs. Thanks in advance for any suggestions

    HED Ardennes +. Pick the model in their line based on how much $$ you want to spend, they are all excellent.

    I have several sets of Ardennes +, both tubular and clincher. Best wheels for the money imo.

    I've got DT CR 1600 Spline set up tubeless with Schwalbe X-Ones. Neither the wheels or the tires are the lightest ones out there, but so far so good. Good tubeless seal, and the rims are holding up to some nasty rocky races.

    Shimano xt hubs $90 the pair from excel sports
    Stan's notubes iron cross rims 32 h $50 the pair
    64 spokes and nipples, 2.0/1.8 rear, 2.0/1.5 front $1 each.

    $200 plus shipping. Maybe less if you order spokes from an eBay seller.

    Build them up yourself or get a buddy to do it for a couple of six packs.

    Bombproof set that can also be used for xc MTb.

    Upgrade the rear hub to xtr for $100-150 more and save 90g.
    Upgrade rims to grail for $50 more if you want to run road disc as well and have a stiffer wheel.
    Upgrade rims to ztr crest if you want full MTb compatibility.

    Easton R90SL have worked well for me. I've run them with Schwalbe Pro One (28mm), G-One (38mm), and X-One All-round (35mm). I ran the G-Ones as low as 18/23 on a grassy, flat cross course, really took the bumps out.
