From stock my Giant had a set of Vuelta Aerolite wheels and hubs and I though that the abuse of rough terrain would kill them. 8 years later they’re still going strong. I’m rather sad that my current “nice” bike didn’t come with the original Bontranger rims, but a swapped out set of Shimano 35’s... in white. It did fit the theme of the Trek Factory Racing scheme but with white bar tape and white rims, it felt a bit flashy. A guy at the pub tells me a decent pair of DT Swiss rims and hubs are only 5000b ($160) so if I’m tempted I could probably swing for that and get an overhaul. But other than my commute I’ve lacked any inspiration/ motivation to get back on the Emonda and actually chew up some mountains.
