    Araya RM17 vs. Ritchey Vantage Comp

    I have two wheel sets with M730 M732 XT hubs. Both are in good shape. The Vantage comp set has straight gauge spokes and the Araya set has Double Butted. Which would you keep for a rider? Thanks.

    I'd definitely keep the RM-17s. I never could keep a set of Vantages straight back in the day when they were new. I disposed of all the Vantages that I obtained over the years, but I still have RM-17s and RM-20s in my garage.
