    2009 Epic Marathon Wheels...

    Crossmax ST or Stans Crest Wheels with ZTR hubs?

    Crossmax's are hard to beat...unless you go with some Industry Nines. Although I'd go with the SLs rather than the STs, but that's just me.

    Crossmax here as well. ST are bullet proof, though if you can find them at a decent deal - SL or even SLR are better. I rode/raced SLR for a season without any issues - 210# riding weight...

    But if the budget will afford only up to ST - still a better choice. Easy maintenance and reliable performance.

    I am considering the STs because they are 2mm wider (19mm) than SL/SLR (17mm). Wouldn't it be better to have the wider rim with the 130g weight penalty?

    2mm is nothing you would notice, at least from my experience... 130g either... SLRs are just so buttery smooth - that you will notice...
