    New wheelset.

    I've got around 200 to buy a new wheelset and cassette for my Spesh FSR XC Comp. Not a lot of money admittedly, but it's all I've got. What do I buy?

    That's tough....
    I'd certainly skimp on the cassette this time round and spend as much as I can on the wheels as you are not really going to wear them
    out.

    XT hubs, Mavic XM819 rims, double butted spokes and brass nipples topped off with an XT cassette should just come in on budget if you shop around.
