    need input; 2013 Crossmax slr 29er vs. Arch/American Classic hub/sapim cxray spokes
    looking at having good wheelbuilder at LBS build me a set of Arch/AmericanClassic/Sapim 29er wheelset, but owner is also recommending the Crossmax SLR 29er for $50 more than Arches. Threw both sets up on scales and Crossmax set was 3 oz heavier than Arch build. Prob is he can't get hold of black sapim spokes currently. Only silver and I'd want black. However, I don't need a racebuild set really until spring as only riding some destination rides and some endurance races this winter and will use my Flow/Hope wheelset (almost 500 grams heavier!) if no new wheelset by then.
