I'm in a bit of a pickle at the moment, but the good kind. I have 4 sets of wheels zipp fc 606 tubulars, awaiting a pair of he'd belgiums laced to Chris king r45 hubs, a pair of Easton ea90 aero clinchers with 2 seasons of hard riding that need the hubs rebuilt, and just purchased a bike online that will be coming with fulcrum racing 1s in unknown as of yet, but presumably good condition. Id like to sell one of the two pairs of clinchers but can't decide on which pair to keep. The Easton's have been reliable and, until now with the bearings getting crunchy/loose, trouble free for many hard miles. The fulcrums will be lighter by 100ish grams and presumably a bit stiffer than the Easton's. I could also get more cash for the fulcrums than the Easton's. Anyone have an opinion one way or the other as to which I should keep an which to sell? Going forward the clinchers will be used as backup/winter/trainer wheels.

Ride the fulcrums a bit once you get them, and decide. The wheels are already used, so adding a few hundred miles to them isn't going to devalue them unless you crash... I've personally not had luck with easton wheels, but you seem to be happy with them.
