    which wheels

    hello, i have the choice between 2 wheelsets. Bontrager Superstock and mavic 517 to XT with double butted spokes. which would be the better choice. the superstocks are 2119 grams however i am not sure about the weight of the 517's, i guess i should add that they are going on a hardtail and i am tipping the scales at around 200 lbs.

    are they both new, one used one new, both used? any considerable pricing difference?

    at first impression i'd also stick w/ the 517's, off the top of my head they have got to be lighter than 2000 grams, and definetley not heavier than the superstocks.
