    Bontrager Race X Lite or Race X Lite Aero

    Hi,
    I am deciding on a wheel set to use for this season. I do not have the funds to buy a wheelset for this cross season. Next season I hope to run tubulars...however this year I can not.

    I have a set of Race X Lites and Race X Lite aeros. I was firts thinking of running the aeros but now think the Race X Lites maybe the better option. They are lighter and have a higher spoke count. I will be around 150lbs for the race season.

    Any experience with these wheels for cross? Oh, I also have a set of A-Class 19 (Alex) wheels. The Bontragers will be set up with Mud 2 tires.

    Thanks for the info.

    The Race X-Lite Aero's are significantly stronger than the Race X-Lite's, albeit at a weight penalty.

    Race X-Lite tubular's are actually not that expensive, fyi.
