Just got a new Fuel EX 9.0 with the Bonty Race Lite wheelset. My Trance has the Mavics. I really like the Mavics for their looks and performance. Would there be any advantage for me to swap the Mavics over to my new bike? I am not very familiar with the Race Lites, pretty much a noob at all this stuff.

The Mavics are lighter, but which ones are stronger??? You could argue that one all day. I guess you could ride them both and see if one has a feel you like better. I know no help huh?

Having both wheelsets myself, I would use the Mavics. They are lighter, stronger and stiffer. And Mavic rims are much easier to use with UST tires, Bontragers can be a pain to mount certain tires on. Bontragers are by no means bad wheels though, they are Bontrager rims with DT hubs and spokes, but I much prefer the Mavics.
