    okay, dumb q, what do you guys think of mavic xp21's?

    they're entry level wheels right?

    if they are, what would you recommend to a college stuident who is about to enter a triathlon but is on a limited budget?

    ... yeah, an entry level rim... made a tad nicer depending on the hubs they're laced to...

    Not particuarlily light or aerodynamic, but relatively durable (under most conditions) and often, inexpensive. I still run CXP21s on my old 'Dale "reference" bike... and am staring at two rims (32 hole still in plastic) awaiting a build (can never have enuff wheelsets). No probs...

    ... oh, they're not terribly heavy! I just popped one of mine on the scales and came up with about 480 grams (again, 700C 32 hole)... which is reasonable.
