wheel choice

I have Fulcrum 5 wheels and DT Axis wheels. Which would you keep?
Thanks for any replies.

I am having a little trouble understanding the question. You have 2 wheel sets. Why do you need to get rid of one? Why not keep them both? If you have one bike frame keep the other set of wheels for future use. Who knows what the future holds, you may come across another frame.

Yes, I do see another bike in your future.

You owe me $10.00 for the fortune telling by the way.

I'd start by googling their spec.

Unless you have a clear preference (in which case you wouldn't be posting) I'd let age and condition be the deciding factor.

I'm selling one of my bikes and I would want to keep the better of the two, for myself.

Thanks for the replies, I think I may have made up my mind.
