    Are you able to order from CRC. If so, you can put together a better set. Easpecially since you have time also.

    I don't see the weights listed anywhere. I have Fulcrum wheels on my road bike and they have been very good so far, but I am not comfortable recommending one of those wheels over the other. Good luck.
    There is not much choice between rotten apples.

    Looks like the inside dimension is 19.5mm and the inner rim wall is not reinforced like a ArchEX or a Frequency I23. More width lets you run a wider tire at lower pressure without it rolling over on curves.. The EX is 21 and the Frequency is 23. Here's the ArchEX. No reinforcement means no recommendation because of tacoing.
