    Bontrager Aeolus 5.0 ACC vs. Mavic Cosmic Carbone SL


    Looking for a decent wheel to make me faster next year. Two bike shops, two good choices. the Mavic costs less. 1500$ vs 1600$. Any advice on choosing between these two? Thanks.

    I know there are other choices, but I really want to buy in my hometown.

    btw, I weigh 190.

    I don't know the wt. difference but I like the Bontragers over the Mavic. Bontrager has an excellent warranty and the wheels are aero but a little heavy. Aero is always more beneficial than wt. unless you only go up hill ALL the time and if you never go over 10mph.

    Cosmic Carbone SL can be had for around 1000 on ebay or anywhere for that matter. Are they the SLR model? Otherwise your LBS is ripping you off.
