Just got a used 2016 Trek Boone 5 and looking to get another wheelset for the road. Don't know much about discs other than the current wheels have 160 rotors and are 6 bolt. The front has a 15mm thru-axle and the rear is quick release.

Looking for a wheelset under 1600 grams, as this will be for road work only and I'm pretty easy on equipment.

Thanks in advance.

Those are tempting but we're a bit more than I planned to spend. I was trying to keep it under $1k, as this is a part-time bike.

I Would also think about getting some built by our own wheel builders.

How wide of tires will you be using? I'd spec a good tubeless rim. Campagnolo or Shimano? If the latter does it need to be 11s?

I'd choose my components and go with handbuilts.

I've got a set of Hed Belgium Plus laced to centerlock DT Swiss 240s - don't remember spoke type off the top of my head. Pretty certain they come in right at/under the weight you are looking for.

I don't have any photos but, can take specifics tomorrow if you are interested.

Not sure about tubeless, as these wheels are for the road. I intend to use 700 x 25 tires, maybe 28. And needs to be 11 speed. It's a Shimano drivetrain but Campy 11 works too.

These sound interesting. I'd appreciate more info when you get the chance.

Fair enough. Certainly tubeless ready rims don't preclude using tubes, however. As for rubber, I would highly recommend trying a fat, supple road tire if you haven't. Latex tubes and Compass 32mm ELs are pretty nice and I just don't buy that they're any slower than 25mm tires.

I don't do latex and I don't do EL - yes, I am a self-professed cheapskate. However, I can attest to the fact that riding on Compass 32mm stampede pass on my last two rides, I don't feel any "slower" than my other bikes with 25-27mm tires, kept up with the group ride just fine...with one ADDITIONAL advantage: it just rolls over and takes the sting out of chip-seal and bring it down a notch or two.

I got some almost brand new Ergott built NOX carbon wheels 32 hole laced to WI industry CL hubs.

PM me if you're interested. I'm willing to deal.

Thx

fyi for all those who pm'd about these wheels - you have replies now. The wheels I offered are the ones shown on this bicycle (http://forums.thepaceline.net/showpost.php?p=1965484&postcount=1). I am planning this weekend to snap a few close-up pictures of the wheels to show the current (great!) condition as a part of a larger Classifieds listing.
