Strengths:    Light and exclusive.

Weaknesses:    Shifting depends upon the speed of the derailleur wheels and is not that fast in a climb. When your computer falls to the ground there is a goud change that it is not working anymore.

Bottom Line:   
Nice exclusive product. Very light and with the ssc brakes a good combination. Never ever came across some other biker using it. Athough it is said that there were a lot of issue with the reliability I never came across this. Only ran out of power once due to the fact that my batteries were old.

Date Reviewed: August 5, 2003

Strengths:    Cassette can be used with Shimano or Campagnolo on a Mavic Wheel. Shifting is silent and very ergo at each of the three shift points. First computer to tell you which cog you're in. Groupset is very light. Brakes are as tight as D/A. It's Not a Shimano product!

Weaknesses:    Poor marketing and support by Mavic. You see it in catalogues everywhere but not O/E on any bikes (save 2000 Cannondale R4000). The shifting system was only offered from 1997 til 2002 and the Groupset was never sold (the Crank/BB was never introduced). For a company that has such a strong presence in the cycling community I've never seen this for sale in a shop off the shelf, in fact I had to order it online from france just to get the front derailleur. Therefore if I have problems not a single Canadian mechanic is familiar with the equipment!
Just poor support by Mavic for a product with such potential.


Bottom Line:   
Light, Ergo, Silent, Expensive, and Unique. That is to say, very French.

Yeah, I know, they don’t have a good performance record, but they are super cool looking :cool: The kit didn’t come in a box, nor did it come with any instructions. My biggest apprehension was whether I could get the ele ... Read More »

Di2 vs Mektronic... PC vs Mac?

Has anyone used the Shimano Di2 yet who has used Mavic Mektronic? I haven't ridden a bike with Di2 yet, but 10 years ago I put Mektronic on one of my bikes. It had roughly 50,000 miles on it when I sold it to a friend but it impressed me. While the front deraileur was cable operated the Mektronic wa ... Read More »

Mavic Mektronic

Whilst at my LBS this morning I saw a Mavic Mektronic "groupset". Not having seen one assembled on a bike I asked a few questions. The LBS had no idea about it... they were servicing the residual Shimano parts. Has anyone ridden Mektronic? If my LBS' experience is the norm, why would anyone bu ... Read More »
