    good, stiff wheels for trail/am, but maybe a bit narrow for someone

    Love mine, currently have a 2.0 on the front and a 2.25 on the back....(laziness rather than technical setup) have ridden them over rocks, mud, up and down hills etc etc and they have performed well.

    Light for the price, had a good deal that knocked 100 ($150) off price which originally swung it for me.

    They're fantastic wheels, I have a set and as I'm currently the proud long term demo-er of a Stache 8 I couldn't think of a better wheel set upgrade. They'll happily run 2.35 Hans Dampfs although I couldn't comment on whether they'd fit through the Stache's chain stays.

    The Mavic MP3 policy is a no brainer to me and I have used it when a big rock took 4 of my spokes out in Wales.

    I'm seriously thinking about buying these wheels too when I can find best price.

    I hate mine! the hubs come lose all the time and the spokes creak like a mother f****r
    I just put my old wtb's on and they feel like butter compared to the mavics. I wished I never bought them, also if you have to send them back to mavic be prepared to be without yore bike for weeks! But they are good looking. There like the really pretty girl that hates sex!!!!( the wheel set is only 6 months old)
