I just ordered a new bike which comes with 2011 spec'd Mavic Ksyrium Elites (1550g). I have read a few threads where folks around here are lukewarm on these wheels versus others in their pricepoint.

They retail for $650. So, if I sell them, I will likely get somewhere in the $475-500 range.... if I am lucky. So I guess I am asking if it makes sense to go this route and try to upgrade to a materially better wheel or just keep them?

I do not have the option to exchange or upgrade on the bike I am getting.

Keep them. They are a good durable training wheel. If you are getting into racing, then save up for a better set of wheels. Ride the Ksyriums when not racing.
