POLL: How many miles do you have on your Ksyriums?James
Feb 18, 2003 2:01 PM
I just passed the 10,000 mile mark and the only trouble I had was 1 rear spoke breakage. I wanted to see how many miles and what problems people have had?

I've had no problems whatsover. Minor trueing but considering the number of potholes I've hit with them thats no suprise.

I'm about 6,000 miles into mine and they have been trouble free.
Only about 1000 miles - but all trouble free. (nm)outofthesaddle

I have about 8,000 miles on them. They are still perfectly trued after numerous potholes and several crashes. I did just recently replace my free hub body. It had a cracked tooth, but it occurred after a huge guy crashed into me.

Around 14K miles. I have trued the rear a few times, just a touch up type true, nothing major (I like 'em to run dead true). No spoke\hub\bearing troubles - trouble free miles really. BTW, I have the older ones with the FTS-L hub and non-shaved rims.

5400 miles with only one problem....bent_spoke

I must have caught a twig or something between the spoke, but i didn't notice it until some time later when I was adding air to my tires. I noticed that 1 spoke looked kind of funny. Looking close I found out that it was bent. I replaced the spoke & realized that I wasn't sure about getting the right tension on the spoke. I took it too the LBS & they quickly touched up the wheel. This took about 2 minutes & they didn't charge me, 'cause they "...didn't do much". I'd say that's two thumbs up for the Ksyriums

No problems. Had to true them 1x after I got them-the spokes weren't prepped right at the factory, apparantly. Since then, perfectly true (even after being jettisoned from the top of a car at 60 mph!)
Just over 5000 Mi including one roofing nail through the rim.(nmSnyder

I have about 5,000 trouble prone miles. Mavic replaced the rear wheel because one of the spokes tweeked and bent the rim. Now the wheel needs truing. I put on Bontrager Race x Lites tonight. Hopefully I will have better luck.
several 10,000 miles; no problems nmDougSloan
