Anybody have experience with BOTH these rims? Which of them would you pick and why?

The X470 is nice and light, but I like the extra width of the SpeedDisc (in particular, the AM version which is 21mm wide internally; although the XC/700c version has been widened from 17mm ('08) to 19mm).

The rim will go on a rigid SS doing dual duty as commuter and trailbike (mostly hardpacked trails, with some sand and gravel, some moderate, sustained climbs). I don't huck or jump, and I don't race.

'appreciate any input.

PS
'would also appreciate the internal width of the X470. I can't find it at the DT Swiss website.

While I don't have any experience w/ the other,I've had my SpeedDiscs for 3-4 months now,and have been very satisfied with them,with no problems of un-trueness so far.
