Ksyrium "break in question"(3 posts)

Has anybody else with the Campy 10 version of the Mavic K's noticed that the freewheel mechanism in the hub doesn't spin that well when the wheels are new? I mean the hubs should spin forever but when the freewheel is free it seems like there is some friction or resistance? Can someone with these wheels tell me when their's broke in ? 200 miles? 500 miles?

Thanks for your time,

This is not an uncommon situation with Mavic freehubs. They must have some very tight seals which create a little excess drag. I had an older pair of Cosmic Pros with the FTS hub and they took a good 1000 km of riding before the freehub did not drag. My Ksyrium rear was much better, probably broke in after 200 or 300 km.
