Bontrager Racelite Wheelset: Why are so many up for sale?Itself

Do guys not like this wheelset or what? I hear they are more flexy than the mavics, but why do so many folks buy a bike with them and then put another wheelset on their bikes? I hear the Racelites are just as good as the Ksyriums.

I hear that so many are for sale because they sell so many Treks ;)
Because they don't have a "K" in frontTrekFurthur

They're great wheels, but people think they're passe because they come spec'ed on bikes, while they have to buy Ksyriums separately (these are good wheels also).

The RaceLites and the K-Elites are about equal weight-wise, as are the Xlites and the K-SL's. However, from my experience the Bontragers ride a little more smoothly; the Ksyriums are a little stiffer.
