    Mavic Crossmax SLR....OR.....Roval Control Trail

    I have been looking at upgrading wheel sets in the near future. I was looking at some Roval until I realized I'm slightly over the suggested weight limit. So I set my sights on the Mavic Crossmax but recently learned that the Rovals will handle much more than their factory weight rating. On the other hand I've been presented with a slightly used set Mavics with S-works tires at a decent price. The fellow was going to put them on his girl's bike but found out they wont fit.

    So I'm looking to hear a consensus from the wheel and tire forum. Which way would you go, Roval or Mavic?

    Well I went ahead and got the Mavics. In an effort to get the stuck cassette off the LB broke the axle, but Mavic warrantied it and sent a whole new hub assembly. Went ahead and had them put on an XT cassette. Looking forward to hitting the trails this afternoon.

    They look good. Hope they are trouble free for you. My Crossmax ST's have been nothing but trouble. They were great for the first 3 months, then they began to make all sorts of noises.
