Hey guys,
Just wondering, do these Mavic Crossrides fit a 2011 Trek Fuel EX5 ? I am looking to upgrade my wheels for something lighter and better. The bike currently has a pair of Bontrager Ranger wheels with a Shimano hub. Do you recommend this upgrade for 100$ ? Is it worth it or should I just more on a better wheel set?

These are the ones I have now:
Wheels Formula alloy DC20 front hub, Shimano alloy M475 rear hub; Bontrager Ranger 32-hole rims

These are the Mavic Crossride's description:

but will it be a significant improvement over the ones I have now?
Since they are probably at least 1/2 to 1 pound lighter than your OEM wheels, you will feel a significant improvement. Reducing rotating weight always improves things.

They are also going to be easier to maintain with the cartridge bearings
