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.

Mavic SSC SL cracked rim....Help!

I have a set of SLs with the dreaded rim cracks around the eyelet holes. After a good amount of research, it seems that the rims are about $130 and up, not counting how much it costs to rebuild. Any idea of another rim would fit? Do the Zircal Spokes only fit into these rims? Any other advice ... Read More »

Mavic SSC SL wheels

Hello, I just picked up a late 90's Klein Quantum Race that was Force drivetrain and Mavic SSC SL wheels. The mavics look pretty cool, but they are silver and I would prefer black. After some research and a quick very unscientific weighing, they aren't really much lighter than the Vuelta Corsa Lite ... Read More »
