Mavic's first try at a nice 29er wheelset was a bit below the mark. The Mavic rep stopped by the other day and showed us the new line-up. There are three, from downright reasonable to downright bling-tastic. The photo is the top of the line model, new from the ground up. Light, stiff, durable. They accommodate all axles front and rear. Real UST. 1600 grams or so. Yep, a grand out of your pocket.
