edited May 2012 in Road buying advice
Ive narrowed it down to these two wheelsets i can get the rs80's for £320 or the elites for £380
in your educated opinions which wheelset would be the better buy?
The wheels are for weekend rides of about 40-70 miles and a few 100 mile spotives and will be the only pair i own.
I like the look of both and need some wheels so i can get out on the road again.

    Search through the road buying advice forum. This very question was asked 3 days ago! It gets asked several times a week...

    But, Elites for the record. Stronger and stiffer.

    Edit - can't find the thread now! heh heh :)

    It's difficult to give you an answer without knowing your criteria... for instance if you were looking for a wheelset that can be serviced at reasonable cost, I would say none of them... the Mavic have been around for a long time and their reliability is well known... possibly worth the extra quids
