    What do you guys think about a set of crosstrails for a clyde?

    I can get a set for $300. I'll be honest, I just like the way they look. The reviews I found were fairly good. They're usually like $500 or $400 and now I can get them for $300 out the door. I weight in about 245lbs, just XC. I take good care of my stuff.

    I had a set of mavics low end crossrides for a while. I too ride just XC, At that time I weighed about the same as you, they held up fine for wheels that had a 180 pound weight limit.

    The crosstrails should be even better. Most people don't like the mavic freehub though. Tends to wear out pretty quickly.

    Thanx for the reply. I was looking at the crossrides as well. Mavic makes some really good looking stuff. They were on sale for like $170 for a set, but I was afraid of those because many people complained about the hubs breaking and the freehub as you mentioned. The crosstrails looked good but a little over my budget. They would have actually been like $350.

    I ended up buying a set of Xenduros for $199 after Performance gave an additional 15% off the sale price. Never paid much attention to them but what caught my attention was the fact that they were only 1938g a set. I didn't want to get a heavier set than what I already have and I wanted something stronger within a $200 budget. Hard to find this combo. These have sealed catridge bearings, 32 3X double butted spokes, and thru-axle conversion for 9mm, 15mm, or 20mm. The rear is a thru-axle as well. Seems like quality stuff and the few reviews I've seen looks pretty good. I get no bling but if I don't like'm I can always return them to Performance. I may just rip these lame stickers off though. I'll do a review in about a month. If they don't work, I'll spring for the crosstrails.

    Watch out for the pawls

    We clydes do have a tendancy to turn lower end drive hubs to dust, especially right at the crest of rainbars or big rocks. Do keep us posted on their durability
