Would someone on this board help me get a Mavic Pro Deal on a set of Ksyrium wheels. I understand that with a pro deal you can pick up a set of Ksyriums for $300. Is there any truth to this?

$300? Yeah wouldn't that be nice. To answer your question, no, there isn't any truth to that. Shop and industry employees do get deals, but not that good, you are off by a couple of hundred bucks.

The Mavic employee discount is for shop employees. The deal is 20% below wholesale. Wholesale for a set of K's is right at $400. Do the math...that equates to $320 for a set. Yes, I do know this for a fact since it's how I buy my wheels! It makes up for the fact that you get paid dick to work at a shop.

Can you help me get a set for $320? Tell me what channels I need to go through. I knew that the pro deal was legit. Just need help getting it. Thanks.

firstly, afaik it's considered bad form to tell everyone exactly how much one pays on a pro deal. secondly (this one I'm sure of) it would not quite be ethical for someone to get you stuff on a pro deal. if you know a bike store employee who owes you a personal favor, possibly.

I work at a shop where we have had a few employees get Ksyriums and I'm pretty sure the deal wasn't that good! Pro Deal is just for shop employees, some racers, etc. so unless you plan on getting a job at a bike shop for a while you're probably out of luck.

I have heard that pro deals with Mavic depends on the volume of sales you do with Mavic. The more the sales the deeper the discount. I have heard the discount is almost 60%.
