I have access to a deal that would put either a set of EA70x wheels or a set of Mavic Reflex 32h laced 3x to Ultegra hubs shipped to my house for a low and equal price. I'm guessing the weights would be roughly the same--about 1650g.
This is my first set of tubulars, I weigh about 200lbs, and will probably do about 10 races in the Chicago area (ChiCrossCup!). Courses are pretty varied, with some hills, sand, and there is always a chance for mud.
My worries are that the Mavics might not shed mud that well and I've also heard about eyelet cracking, especially for Clydes like me. With the Eastons, I've head the freehubs are pretty soft and get gouged up.
Thoughts and advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Cross is almost here.
