    WHY???.... You would probably be money ahead to ebay the equippes and buy the elites or have the LBS just do the switch and charge the difference. Around here it's $80 to respoke a wheel and tha't using standard DB spokes.

    I am with Boudreaux on this one... even if you can justify it financially, you would be way better off selling the wheels and getting the ones you want... besides what are the chances the LBS will give it back to you built as well as when it comes from the Mavic factory in China errr I mean France? Just sell the wheels and get what you want.
