    Seriously - talk about an impulse buy. I don't even think I need new wheels, but now I have a set coming!

    Thanks for posting. I bought them a week ago and they showed up last night. $89 +$19 for shipping. I half thought that there would only be one wheel in the box.

    Good stuff!!

    They had the same set in black last week! Too bad it got sold out quick. The $95 XTR hydraulic brakes are gone too :-(

    How much does your king/819 wheelset weigh? I was about to pull the trigger on a craigslist deal on xt/819s for 200, but saw this and thought, "well, if I ride them for the rest of this season and don't trash them, I should be able to sell them used and get almost all my money back anyway." They aren't ust, but half the tires I run have tubes in them anyways.
    Had to buy a set just to try them out. Any concerns about the low spoke count, or are these pretty ok for extended/aggressive xc?

    Are these drilled for Presta or Schrader?

    Ordered a set last night so I could upgrade my son's bike to 6-bolt hubs and give him my previous take-off BB5's. I'm a Clyde with plenty of crashes under my belt so this 24-spoke wheelset isn't intended for me personally. My son's OE wheels will go onto my vacation bike to upgrade those craptastic wheels when I next see the bike.

    It's worth mentioning that if you use PayPal "Bill-Me-Later" option for the first time, you'll get a one-time $10 credit.

    Damn you guys.

    Didn't really require another wheelset, but the price was too good. Just ordered two sets, delivered to my door (Vanc, BC) for just under $218.

    I don't have a scale but according to Mavic the front is 900gr and the rear is 1040. They "feel" very light to me... but I'm a noob.

    Pretty cool

    Finally a righteous deal around here. Especially for me as I was assembling parts to replace a wheel that was stolen from my daughter. That stolen wheel was a Hope disc rear hub, Mavic 717 Disc and DT 14/15 spokes. This won't be as light but they'll look cool and will probably be OK on my daughter's bike for the price, which is not much more than a nice disc rim alone.

    I had noticed the same rear wheel alone at the Nashbar for $80.

    I got a shipping confirmation at 1:15AM showing expected delivery in Atlanta tomorrow from Little Rock - at 38.0 lbs. WTF? No way that's only one wheel for half the price of a complete wheelset but did they throw in the rest of the bike too?

    Or 30+ lbs worth of rim strips and sealant? Or lead shielding to protect my privacy from UPS x-ray machines? Holy crap. If these wheels weight 15 lbs each, that explains the price and they're going back. No, wait...that's too damn heavy to ship back!

    Yeah, it said mine weighed 38 lbs too but when it arrived yesterday it weighed maybe 5 with the box. I think they missed a decimal... 3.8lbs maybe? HA!

    Got mine in last night. Shipping weight was supposedly 7.5 pounds for a single set. The wheelset was is in a two layer shipping carton and banded so that's probably where the shipping weight estimates are coming from.

    Wheels were in perfect condition, came with skewers, rim strips and Mavic documentation. Can't ask for a better experience from Competitive Cyclist!

    Don't know if I will get charged with taxes. Will know when the wheels are delivered or picked up at the post office. Sometimes I get charged taxes on bike gear out of the US other times not.

    Will advise once they are in my hands.

    Dimensional Weight - how much room the box takes up converted into a weight. If I ship a man-sized cardboard box empty, it might only weigh 5 lbs. But they'll charge me for the amount of space it just took up inside the truck.

    +1 on the dimensional weight.
    Mine just landed up as well. Again, I don't have a scale, but these seem to be super light compared to the stock Alex rims on my bike.

    In for set, cheaper than I can get for cost through the shop. Nice find!

    Need to find some good fork deals now.
    The wheel is a extension of the foot

    That's a great deal but I'm not sure I could trust a 24 spoke count hub under my 240 lb body.
    Damnit its almost worth the risk!

    Thanks op. I put some slicks on them for my hardtail. When swapping from my old wheels (shimano type) to crosstrails with trail tires, I would have to adjust everything. The der. and rotor line up on these like the other mavics.

    And here we go already - somebody on Atlanta Craig's List looking to make a quick $30 profit:

    Mavic Crossride Wheelset - $140
    http://atlanta.craigslist.org/nat/bik/2248990958.html

    Dollars to doughnuts this is a new wheelset from Competitive Cyclist being resold. Some dumbass is going to buy these and eventually his bragging will lead to the realization that he's been had.

    Did Mavic ever fix the issue with wobbling cassettes on their freehubs? I'd buy a set of these for my GFs bike but she's got an older Crossride rear wheel and cassettes, properly spaces and locked down, wobble on the freehub. Really poor tolerances but doesnt affect the shifting, just makes me not want to buy any hubs marked Mavic.

    the wobble is caused by the nylon bushing inside the freehub wearing down. proper maintenance should keep it going for awhile as dirt wears it down faster, but it can be replaced.

    The Crossrides didn't do it for me, but CC also had Crosslines for a ridiculous price ($159). I needed a 12mm through/135 rear which isn't super-easy to find cheaply.

    When I got them, CC sent centerlock versions rather than 6-bolt. Also the Mavic instructions are completely incomprehensible. I called CC and received excellent service figuring out how to convert the rear hub and also shipping me out a set of centerlock/6-bolt adapters. I offered to pay for upgraded shipping to get the parts faster for my new build and CC shipped them 2-day on their dime.

    So, very positive experience for me. Yeah, they made an error, but they owned it and made me happy with their solution. Going to put them in my regular rotation for parts purchases after this experience.

    Must be the Crosslines you're talking about being sold out. The original Crossrides for $89 are still available. Seems odd though - how could they have so many sets available that they can blow them out at this price for over a week and still not be sold out? Weird.
