Strengths:    It's not Shimano! All allen-head adjustment bolts. You can completely disassemble and assemble it yourself due to the use of C-clips on the pivot points. Light weight.

Weaknesses:    Compatability problems with ramped chainrings.

Bottom Line:   
The Mavic road front derailleur has remained essentially unchanged for the past 8 years. It's a solid, no-nonsense, no gimmicks front derailleur. The original Mavic crankset it was designed for did not use ramped chain rings. As a result, shifting will be smoother with a non-ramped chainring setup than a ramped one. My personal setup is with a Croce d'une (spelling?) crankset and non-ramped rings. It works fine. Compatability with STI or Ergo shifters is also questionable.

I found some early stage alloy corrosion around the eyelets. A bit of light scraping removed the powdery buildup. The eyes and spokes themselves are p ... Read More »

FMB Grippo vs SSC

I wonder if the Grippo would make a better front tire? I'm happy with the SSC as a rear tire, but maybe the Grippo rolls eve ... Read More »

Mavic's "SSC" system

Hello, I am thinking about getting a mavic R-sys SLR but many of my friends didnt recommend taking that path. They suggested SSC needs more maintenance than many of its competitors do(rather supplementary, i think) So other than shorter warraty, whats the difference? does it need be taken care of m ...

Replacing original Mavic Ksyrium SSC

I have an original Mavic Ksyrium SSC wheelset (ca. 2001) that came with the used bike I picked up awhile back. I've put about 2,500 miles on it, and it is a solid wheelset. I'm thinking about replacing them with another alloy clincher set, though, for two reasons, and I'm looking for advice. First, ... Read More »
