    Nice deal. Note the 15mm thru axle, probably the cheapest wheelset with a thru axle I've seen.

    Right. But it's not so easy to convert a QR to a 15mm.

    So if you have a 15mm thru axle and need a really cheap light wheelset, this is a great value. It also is if you use a QR and missed the last deal on Competitive.

    Heck this isn't even relevant to me. I'm still on those last cheap Mavic Crossrides from Competitive, with the QR.

    You'll definitely hear the freehub when coasting if that's what you mean.

    All freehubs sound as loud as hope pro2s? By loud I mean significantly loud sound. Louder than normal.

    I had them for two years and they were the most reliable in that price range (MSRP). now they're only $99! go for it. Mine doesn't sound loud at all.

    Yup I agree, definitely not loud. Maybe your freehub needs grease?

    They certainly are light, especially for the pricepoint. Something like 1920g. And quite stiff. And they look pretty sharp, with the 24 bladed spokes. And they only got slightly out of true when I rode them.

    But not sure about reliable. In fact, I don't think they are at all really.
    Mavic Crossride Hub Defects

    I'm around 110lbs, and I managed that on standard XC riding. The hub design hasn't changed either. Not sure how strong these are, but I personally wouldn't say they're reliable. It happened over an off camber root on a more technical local trail (South Loop at Blankets, for anyone from N. GA) and I was going quite fast, but it shouldn't have broken a wheel. Not even a pinch flat with that, and I run my tires at less than 20psi tubed. Mavic CS was pretty good about it though, my LBS sent them back and I got another rear wheel.

    Yeah that's a weird issue you had. I got 2 sets of the 9mm QR UB/disc version Crossrides back in the spring and rode 1 set all spring and summer. No babying lots of rocks/roots smaller drops/jumps and a couple crashes. The hub flanges still looks fine. I did just swap out for my second set because the other one was going out of true. I'm wondering if the tension from the factory just isn't that accurate or maybe you got a bad batch (I have seen other reviews with that problem too).

    I can't run anywhere near that low of a PSI with tubes but then again I weigh a good deal more.

    BTW these things are really easy to service.

    AFAIK the parts are not interchangeable between the Crossmax and Crossride. At best it would be the FH body. The hubs, spokes and rims are all different.

    The Crossrides would be a good backup wheelset.

    My (flyweight) girlfriend has been riding crossrides for several years now- no reliability problems and they take ghetto tubeless very well. $135 shipped is a bargain, we'd buy another set except she needs 20mm front axle now.

    Turns out my rear wheel (currently have the Crossrides) needed replacing, so I went ahead and ordered this set to replace both. Thanks for sharing the deal!

    Exactly what I did. Very nice upgrade for less than $400. Loving the stiffness of the 15mm vs. QR and the wheels arrived very true and evenly tensioned. Love the look (the 2012s are silver, bleh)

    WIsh the fork was a little more reactive on little stuff, tho Im running very low pressures (too low and the fork wont return to its full resting position).. Hoping Slick Honey and ride time will help!

    Weird -- on my iPad the photo looks fine, on the desktop they're rotated oddly.

    Dont know how to fix -- sorry.

    I couldn't use the front wheel because it was the wrong size, so this is all I need right? I have 6 bolt disc brakes also, but I think it only came with one conversion, and that was used on the rear.

    That should be all you need to run a QR wheel -- and apparently another Centerlock adapter.
