I'm in the process of buying a new pair of wheels. :D

I can have the following wheels for approximately the same price:
- Ax-Lightness Stream 55 SRT T on Tune MIG 45 and MAG150 hubs (1140g)
- Mavic Cosmic Carbone Ultimate (1185g)

The wheels will be used on a German bike. Rose X-Lite Team 8800.
Which one should I choose and why?

How about Lightweight Standard III compared with the other two?
Used, they are not that much expensive...

Lightweight Standard III of course. Way stiffer than AX and better hubs than Mavic.. Sexier too.

Exactly also I belive lighter than the others.

Does LW have any support for 2nd owners? Meaning warranty support for non original owners. Crash replacement?

THanks

If the original owner has registered them online, as he should have, then you have all the warranty support.

In the opinion of you all, what is an adequate price for a Lightweight Standard III (Tubular) in good condition?

There's some Lightweight Gen III T with tyres in the for sale section for $2100 aud, less than €1500, defiantly worth a look.
