I would say that it all depends on your size and how hard you ride them. I have a friend that is a little under 200 lbs that rides harder than hell and on the broken up California roads he was going through a set a year.Pondering the gear while stuck in the winter snows.

OK training wheels or museum piece?
Older Mavic wheels were good. And if you are a light rider, chances are you won't have any problems with newer Mavic wheels. But there are better choices.I have had excellent luck with my Mavic wheels that came on my CAAD 10. They seem to stay true, and so far, no issues at all. What I read about Mavic makes me pause on anything new, but I feel fortunate that they have been really good wheels over the years.
