Got about $1000-1200 to spend on upgrading my rims...2 simple questions...

1) Is it worth it???

I'm 'average'. Been doing mtb for almost one year (fitness freak always)...Just started racing... I finish top half or better in Novice...and but ready to move up a notch which will put me in back half. Don't mind spending the money, but I know I can really improve on my cardio. Worth spoiling myself? Noticable?

2) Which ones (duh)?

I liked reviews here for the newest carbon Spesh wheels (1200). Stan's seemed nice too.

The carbons look nice .
They should be great wheels. And they can go on to anything you get in the future.
I built up ArchEX rims on an ebay star ratchet oem rear and ZTR front with two rears for 500 and they would work fine also. Two fully loaded wheelsets would be an advantage for racing.

Have you considered the regular aluminum Roval Controls? They are only 100g heavier and cost ~$500 less. Same hubs. I have them and they have held up great and are a reasonable weight for daily use (not that these carbon ones aren't). If the new ~$1200 carbon ones would have been out when I got mine I may have considered them.
