    Budget AM Wheelset: Crossride vs. Rhyno Lite

    I'm trying to decide on a budget wheelset for my all mountain hardtail. I think I've narrowed it down to these two choices. My concerns are that the crossrides may be a little narrow at 19mm and weak, but the rhyno lites are a bit heavy. Anyone with any input or experience with either wheel. Thanks in advance for any help!

    Wheelsets in question:

    From my experience, it can be real difficult to mount certain tires onto Rhyno Lite rims.

    Rhyno Lite XLs seem to be easier.

    Fulcrum wheelsets are way better and lighter than Crossrides. In the manual, it states that its rated for XC/AM too.

    Fulcrum is the MTB sister company of Campagnolo I was told.

    I recently built my son a pair of 24" wheels with Rhyno Lite rims and Shimano Deore hubs... They weigh ten tons.
    I like turtles
