Unlikely. They're straight pull but the issue is the nipples which is proprietary. Different hubs required different length spokes. You wouldn't be able to use the mavic spokes as they're probably the wrong length. DT-Swiss or Sapim straight pull spokes may fit in the hub but probably won't play with the mavic nappies. To be honest there's nothing intrinsically wrong with the hubs, so you're probably best off just putting up with them.

Sure they can be re laced to any 16 /20 hole hub i.e. White Industries T11's or Chris King R45's. Yes the nipples are proprietary however they work with a standard 2.0 spoke thread and I can get them from Mavic. Cost is hubs, spokes, nipples (about $0.85 ea) and labor ($60.00 per wheel).
