    Mavic Crossmax

    I picked up a used bike cheap. The rear rim (Mavic 317) took a good hit and I need to take it to the LBS and see if it's able to be trued. The front rim is an older Mavic CrossMax with the flat bladed spokes. From what I've read, the Mavic rear hubs are problematic and require a lot of maintenance, but not too many reports of issues with the fronts. I'm trying to decide which way to go with this. The rear rim may need to be replaced, so it would make sense to pick up another CrossMax for the rear. I'm kind of anal about having matching rims. What would you do?

    Consider replacing the rear wheel with a new wheel, and maybe a matching rim for rebuilding the front to coordinate, if that makes you feel better. If you have the budget, consider a new wheelset from BWW, or wherever you can get the best deal.

    Mavic hubs are fine the maintaince takes about 5 minutes to do...

    Work with the LBS you will probably get a quick cheap fix...

    If not buy new....consider mavic and others

    I'll keep that in mind. I really only need a rear though.
