I have a 2008 Scott CR1 with stock Mavic Aksium wheels. I got into a crash with a someone on a mountain bike last week and now my front wheel has a broken spoke and is off true. My LBS says it'll cost $200 to ship the wheel to Mavic to get a replacement. But I'm taking the opportunity to upgrade.
I stay on the road, usual ride is 15-30miles. I'm about 170lbs. I like group rides / charity rides. At the LBS, I was introduced to the Mavic Ksyrium Elite vs the Bontrager RXL. I'm hoping to spend $500-$700. There are so many brands out there that I'm somewhat overwhelmed. I would really appreciate any recommendations. Thank you in advance.
