Wheels again...KEN2
Oct 17, 2001 7:56 AM
I too am thinking about upgrading my wheels. I have stock Mavic CXP 10 wheels, 32 hole laced to RX 100 hubs. I'm 195 lbs, ride a mix of hills and flats, solo average speed is about 16-17, group rides @ around 20-21 mph. I don't think I want anything totally aero because of the weight penalty. Can't afford Ksyriums...thinking about Mavic Cosmos which are available in black (black and yellow matches my frame) for $217 at totalcycling.com. The rim looks similar to Open Pros which I have on my 'cross/commuter bike and love. Opinions?

If you wait until December you can get 2002 Kysrium Elite wheel set for $499. Same hub as it's big brother. I met with a Mavic sales rep today and he showed them to me, good looking set of wheels.1700g
