Which wheelset would you keep, which would you sell?

I have two relatively unused wheelsets. I want to keep one for "just in case" purposes in case I wreck my favored wheelset.

I have
Bontrager Race Lites - 5-6,000 miles, never wrecked. Originally came with my Trek 5200 (2003)
Ritchey Protocols - bought new through my old team in 2005. Never wrecked, couple thousand miles.

Both have been raced several times. Like I can tell a difference...

I hated those Ritcheys. They were always flexing and pinging on me. Which is why I didn't keep them.

If you can't tell a difference though, keep the ones that look prettier.
Or sell the ones that will get you more money.
