I'm building a 29er single speed this winter and I'm very happy with how the wheels came out. Rims are by Nextie and they are 37 mm external by 30 mm internal. I chose this SRAM 900 hub because the price was right but also because I'm using a Rockshox Pike fork and the hub came with torque caps and regular caps.

Spokes are Sapim Force triple butted in black paired with Sapim "bright green" 14 mm aluminum nipples. I've owned a SS previously but it had a regular freehub body. The Paul Components Disk Word hub has equally spaced flanges which yield a stiff, dish free wheel. For those that care, 1735 grams for the pair.
