    Crossride or Rhyno Lite

    Need a new wheel set for my single speed project and didn't want to drop much money on them. In this range it seems like I've seen praise for both setups and didn't know if there were any strong deciding factors between them.. Which hubs are better the XT or the ones on the Mavic? Won't be any big jumps just the usual root/rock/short drop XC stuff. Also was looking for both disc and v brake compatibility in case I decide to change forks later on and switch to disc. I'm also not a big weighty dude (175) so they won't have to take a huge pounding.

    The Mavic wheelset is lighter by at least 1/2 lbs...but the XT/Rhyno-Lite wheelset will be easier to source parts from an LBS

    Lightweight or serviceability...tough call

    Looks like the Mavic weight is minus the QR and the Rhyno is weighed with the QR. They're prob within 100g in the end.
