Just picked up my new bike and I now have a dilemma! Please help

it's come with miche connect 7yx or something. I have a set of ksyrium elites that are the older style (no ridges where the spokes come out).

I can't work out which to use!

Gut instinct says mavic.... am I wrong?

  • The Mavics will be lighter, the miche are well I have never used the connect wheels but there reflex wheels are pretty robust but they have more spokes. -wheel building and other stuff.

    Just looked properly, they're vx7.

    I want to do crits on them so stiffer is better....mavics?

  • I suspect the Miche will the stiffer but thr Miche rims will be heavier so acceleration will be comprided a bit. I am not sure one is better than the other. They are both low spoke count and both are round. They should be fairly similar. Try them out back to back and see what you think. There maybe clear differences. -wheel building and other stuff.
