    XT wheels 775 VS 785

    Hi,

    I'm deliberating between those 2 wheelset, can get the 775 for a better price.
    Is the newer 785 set really better?
    I see there is about 22grams weight difference. No big deal. But is there a difference in strength and reliability? Or inner rim width?

    What do you think?

    How much better a price? I am one who has no problem with a NIB product that is several years old. I don't think rims change that quickly over a few years. I have some DT Swiss CR-1's that are awesome. Never need straightening. (Of course I just jinxed myself) Buying quality saves a ton over the life of a bike.

    I am not familiar with riding those rims, but XT is quality. The concept of saving a few bucks is good, if you still get quality.
    I think its disgusting and terrible how people treat Lance Armstrong, especially after winning 7 Tour de France Titles while on drugs!

    I can't even find my bike when I'm on drugs. -Willie N.
