I would pick the Mavic simply because it is much easier to mount tires on them. They are good rims, too.
Shiggy,

how do you feel about Velocity rims in comparison to the mavics. I have ridden almost exclusively mavic but have become interested in Velocity because of chatter more than anything. My understanding is they are great rims, some suggest they are superior to mavic. What is your take

Are you a weight weenie??? If not, I personally love my Rhyno Lites. The rear one has held up 5 years of my 190lbs worth of abuse.....

normally, I am not a weight weenie, but my bike is on the heavy side and don't want any extra. Anyway, thanks for the replies. I ordered the mavics.
I also heard from alot of posts that its hard to change tires on the lites, including shiggy, so I went with mavic xm321.

Yup. Good rims. I use the VXC.
