Alright, lots of back and forth on some Mavic wheels but I have a question on the Mavic SL Premiums...
I have a budget wheelset on my nice carbon road bike. Been riding them for two years, they're okay, but in serous need of an upgrade. Spokes starting to go. A riding pal just told me he's selling some Mavic SL Premiums in like-new condition. From what I gather reading a few threads on here people like them, think they aren't that light, are a bit expensive, not that serviceable, and not that aerodynamic.
I do a lot of solo training rides, don't road race, and do go on fast group rides. Wheels, even the budget set I'm on, have never held me back. Any wheels would be huge upgrades. I'd get these at a very nice price.
A few things:
-already race cyclocross on Ksyrium ESs and they've been awesome
-hmm, don't road race, but I said that.
There are always PROs/CONs with any wheelset. Just guess I'm looking for a yea/nay on will some SL Premiums be a nice upgrade and a good, strong wheelset, especially considering I'm on very budget Neuvations. I'd put some Continental GP 4000s on these and hope to just ride them like crazy for a few years.
A good day becomes a better day with a bicycle ride.
