While I have NO personal input to the Mavic Elites I will offer my $.02...love the ambiguity of the Internet.

I had Bontrager "Race" on my Zuirch and had a similar debate about changing the wheels last year...so I shopped and shopped and read all I could about the Mavic's, the better Bontragers, the Am. Classic's, etc.

I went with Velomax Orion II's and couldn't be happier. I went to RoadBikeReview and bought them brand new for like $400! They're strong, stiff and fast and more than 2/3 of a pound lighter then the Bontragers I had, lighter than the Mavic's too.

BUT, if you want Mavic's I'd say go with the Elite's or the SSC SL's. Colorado Cyclist has the SSC's on sale for like $700 right now.

Good luck.
