Planning on selling the TXC in the spring after I am sure that the TE is fully sorted as a 95% off road bike but fully street legal.
Both bikes have Grimeca polished hubs but the TXC has OEM issue Excel Takasago rims and the TE has Saxxes Race (bike is brand new but has been on the floor for 3 years, assuming the Saxxes Race were a fill in item?), just wondering if one is better than the other assuming all other parts of the wheel sets are identical?
The Excel rim's are a little stronger than the Saxess, they are made with a little stronger aluminum that is more resistant to bending.
All other part's like spokes/hub's should be the same. You just want to make sure the spacing is the same on the hub.
