Answer: 
High end Dirt Jump rims will nearly always be compatible with disc brakes only and assuming you want the 'best rim' I have listed a few great options below which wont break the bank.

Answer: 
Yes, your hubs can be rebuilt on to new rims but it is not a service which we currently offer.

I would suggest that you speak to a local bike shop who should be able to do this for you and advise of prices etc.

Answer: 
Yes we still offer custom wheel builds; you can use the existing kits (http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/...) or simply add the hub and rim of your choice to your basket along with the workshop spokes linked below, and the wheelroom will build the wheel for you at no extra charge.
