    Need some wheel advice

    I just bought a Guru steel frame bike from a friend. It's running Mavic Ksyrium Elites. My Masi has Aksium Race wheels. I want to get a new set of lighter wheels for the Guru so I am going to put the Elites on the Masi and sell the Aksiums. The Aksiums have seen two seasons and are in excellent condition. First question....what is reasonable to ask for the Aksiums? My LBS sells Bontrager Race Light wheels and the rear goes for $575. Just looking for opinions on that particular wheel. I know it's significantly lighter than either of my Mavics but beyond that I know little about them. Anyone have experience/opinions? FWIW I want to stay with AL clinchers. The LBS also says they are tubeless ready which may come into play at some point. GURU 001.jpg
