So my LBS can make up a pair of wheels for £960

DT Swiss 240 hubs
Sapim CX-Ray spokes
50mm full carbon rims

Not sure I can really beat that.

And if they are good at it...I'd rather have some good hand built wheels over mass market machine made wheels any day.

Dura Ace C35's should come in right around 1K GBP as well.

Yea - I think this dude is legit.

Could be a winner.

I was also thinking of the Dura Ace 9000 C50s as I imagine they'll all be on sale pretty soon.

thanks, it's a wilier izoard, custom painted matte forest green with gloss decals. Only decals now are down and headtubes, so it's nice and clean.

Finally getting around to replacing out stolen bikes (Ibis Mojo SL-R and two road bikes) with the insurance money. One of my local shops has a Mojo SL-R from a few years back that they never sold and they are willing to part with for a good price (~1/2 off) so I think I'm going to get it (have a deposit down on it now). I have some indecision over sticking with 26" and wondering if I should pony up for the Mojo 3 and 27.5 or Ripley (with 29s). This is complicated by the fact that my wife and I shared our old Mojo in a size smaller than I would normally do and the old SL-R I am looking at is a size L which my wife wouldn't be able to ride so she is likely to get a Ripley in Medium that I could also ride as a change of pace.

Question for any of your MTBers is whether I am going to regret sticking with a 26" bike or should pay up for a 27.5" Mojo 3.

I'm no MTB master but I actually like riding a slightly smaller frame than one "my size".  They are easier to handle in the rough sections as well as downhills.  It's only on flat singletrack that my "real size" has the advantage
