R-Sys Fail Jun 9, 2009


Velo New‘s own Ben Delaney had a shattering experience with a post-recall Mavic R-Sys front wheel. Who says blonds have more fun?

    Why do people buy this crap? Use some handbuilt wheels with stainless spokes.

    Reading through and thinking… Its scary how much trust we put into our equipment!!


    same thing happened to a dude on bikehugger….but it was the rear wheel…the one they didnt recall

    A DOI!

    Let’s see, Millar’s multiple failed discs at the tour, the notoriously bad freehub bodies, and now utterly jingus new technology blowing up on multiple Guys With Bike Websites. Protip: never buy anything from Mavic that they haven’t been making for like 20 years.

    Not to mention their Open Pros turning into complete shit over the past 2 years. If you order 6 of them from a distro, chances are 4 will be either bent, missing eyelets or cracked.

    Tisk tisk Mavic!
