Anyone have any experience with the EX511 vs the FR560. They have the same internal and external widths. But there is a 60g difference between then. How much tougher are the FR560 rims?

I see a lot of FR560's in the bike park on rental bikes so I imagine they are a good amount tougher. 60g more is a lot for one rim.

Im looking for EX511 and am seeing with the bump in cdn $, that US retailers are looking better.  Queue the LBS MOB
