I am looking to buy a new wheelset after a crash last week. I can't afford much so I'm looking into the mavic equipe wheelset. From reviews it seems to be a pretty solid set and I ride on some roads that aren't as smooth as I'd like. I was really leaning towards the white set, but am kind of thinking the black set would be more..."traditional" and have more "professional" look. I'd like to look into the Mavic Elite set which is a much lighter set, but again financially its not an option.
Edit: I clean and wipe down my bike after each ride, so keeping the white clean isn't an issue for me.
