Hey all.

I have two sets of wheels, one White Industries on Mavic and the other WTB on WTB. Which would you keep and which give away, and how come? Is one set that much more desirable / cooler / whatever to you than the other?

The reason for asking is that a friend is after some wheels for their 96 Rockhopper and while I'm totally happy to give them a set, I'm torn as to which one!

The White Industries have a fat look to them which I really like - particularly the front - they've got pink nipples too. But the rear WTB is totally sweet looking, and the WTB's were built by 'Gravy', which perhaps adds points. Your input would be very welcome!

Thanks.

:D

A friend needs wheels, and I have. That's the key!

I'd keep the Whites, personally. Especially if pink is your 'thing' :)
