Wondering if anyone has hung them up as relics and looking to give them new life.
Must be:
light. Sub 1400g.
15x100 front TA
12 x 142 rear TA.
in decent shape.
Budget friendly.
Can be 9/10/11 speed hub.

Also looking for 1x 11 or 12 speed derailleur, shifter,
28 tooth chain ring direct mount or spider.
Prefer shimano. Xt? Xtr?
Again it all revolves around budget.
Rims have priority.

The only wheelsets that I know that would fit your weight criteria are STANS ZTR PODIUM MMX. Those use to sell for $1000 brand new and has been discontinued long time ago. Also DT Swiss XRC 1350 was sub 1400 but that was well over $1000. If you want light and on a budget then I would recommend ZTR Crests. Those are just a notch above 1400gr and even if you don't find them in 142 rear axle they can be easily converted. Check e-bay. Sounds like you are building a light 26er.
