A few more spokes will add stiffness strength, and durability at a minimal weight penalty. Forget about Mavic prebuilt wheels, they are by faaaaaaar the most troublesome of the big wheel mfg's.

RDV4ROUBAIX said:I'm absolutely not a fan of mass produced prebuilt wheels anyway, but these are the choices that the OP gave. If you really want to get bang for the buck, go custom. You know how I roll LugHugger, you've been around here long enough to know.
