    Mavic XM319 or EN321 rims, which is better?

    I ride pretty rocky XC and want a strong durable rim and was wondering which you would recommend.

    I would like to use 2.3 - 2.35 tires. It looks like both rims would accommodate them.

    Price difference is not that much between the two, any recommendations?

    Wider is better in most cases (unless weight is an issue)...wider tire footprint, ergo better traction. If you can swing it (or find them on sale) WTB's Frequency rims come in a 21/23 mm internal width, and have a UST profile for use with tubeless tires
