I have decided that I would like to do a little retail therapy and get a new set of wheels for my 2017 Trance 2 and use the stock wheels as my winter studded set.
I’ve been bouncing around different sites and the selection is pretty big and confusing so I was wondering if you folks wanted to assist me in choosing a new set?
I see sets for $100 into the thousands with differing widths but am having trouble comparing them to what I have as there isn’t a ton of detailed spec about stock wheels online that I have found.
IE. Fulcrum Red Zone 500, Hope Forus 30, Race Face Aeffect R, etc. How do they compare to stock Giant AM Boost 27.5 ETRTO 584x23 wheels?
My requirements are fairly simple
- An upgrade from stock wheels (lighter, etc)
- Low cost preferably $3-400 if possible
- Able to run 2.3-2.6 width tires
Bicycle wheels are not my strong suit and I am tossing in the towel. If you have something to sell or would like to assist in my retail therapy adventure I am all ears
