Personally, I couldn’t be fussed whether the bike comes with AR or ARC rims. The weight difference is minimal, and I’d kill either after a season. But give me a decent rear hub to build that new rim onto. Any time I have ran cheaper hubs, it has not worked out well for me. Having a rear hub fail is expensive; not only do you need to get a new hub (since many lower-end hubs are not easily serviceable), you need to get the wheel rebuilt as well. And usually a rear hub failure means walking home. Sadly, DT 370s on an $8000 bike is increasingly normal.
