Speccing some wheels for my girlfriend's bike but can't decide on the rim.
I'm stuck between a Mavic XC717 or XM719. The XM719 is a little heavier and I guess a little more robust. I'm leaning towards the XM719 for this reason and because I've bent a few XC717's in the past. But then I'm a 12 and a half stone clumsy oaf, whereas my girlfriend is four stone lighter and considerably less oafish. It'll only be used for XC and a few trail centres, nothing too extreme and certainly no jumping, so surely a XC717 will be fine. Somebody help persuade me.
