    Who has the best price on Crossmax SLR's?

    I am looking to get a set of Mavic Crossmax SLR Disc wheels. I need the 6 bolt disc ones. the best price i found so far was 799.99 shipped. Anyone know of any better prices??

    Just my opinion... the SL's weight is just the same as the SLR's, but they're $100 cheaper. Have you thought about it?

    Nope, cheapest place I found was that store that you found also! Used Google search, froogle, bestbikebuys, and qbike.

    I wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.

    I have the 2006 Crossmax SL Disc's. What is the difference then, is it just color, is one stiffer or what?

    As i have recently sold my SL's and bought some SLR's, the SLRs are lighter. Supposedly a bit stiffer etc, but i really doubt many will really notice the difference unless you are a pro elite racer.

    They look different, work well and are a bit lighter than the SL's. Are they worth the extra $$ over the SL.... depends how much spare $$ you have! My real opinion, probably not

    2007 models (SL's and SLR's) are about 150g lighter than 2006 SL's. My point is, both '07 SL and SLR weigh just the same (according to Mavic's website), so, why don't you just buy '07 SL's instead of SLR's and save a hundred bucks? Color won't be a problem, since you already have the '06 SL's...

    Far as i know the only difference (functional) between the 2007 SL and the 2007 SLR is the titanium skewer.

    The 2006 SL is heavier than the 2007 models. (15%??)

    I debated the same thing for a long time. Shall I sell my 06 SL's and replace it with 07 SLR's? As ryan123 said, " depends upon how much spare $$ you have ! " Is the color and weight difference worth the extra $$ ? I decided it wasn't worth the extra $$ so i kept my 06 SL's.

    Agree, in the end it's just a matter of money. I you have the cash and think it's worth, just go for it...

    My LBS is selling a set of last year's SLR's for $600. I think internet shops may not be allowed to advertise for less than full retail (799) so it might be worth it to walk into a couple local shops and see if they can hook you up.

    There is no such thing as a "last year's SLR's". Crossmax SLR wheels were introduced as a 2007 model.

    maybe they were SLs then. I was not interested in them so didn't look real closely. I did pick up a pair of SXs for 600, which seemed like a pretty good price.

    The non-disc version is lighter that the non-disc SL but the disc versions are the same. You do get the Ti skewer and a set of wheel bags. For the lightest disc set up go with the center locks and a XTR rotor. They will work will all brake set ups assuming you are using 160mm rotors. We will beat any authorized dealers advertised price.

    I'm planning to get a pair... But I thought it would be lightest to get the 6-bolt pattern & Alligator Serrated 160mm rotors with Ti bolts. I might be mistaken with my accounts, could you verify for me, please?

    Thanks!



    addendum: that should save me about 70-80 grams from my current setup (XTR WH-M975-disc with XTR SM-RT97 CL rotor(160mm).

    I think the center lock version (the version in which mavic publishes the wheel weight) is about 30grams per wheel lighter than the 6 bolt version

    Thanks, applegreenheckler. But I have come up with these numbers...
    6-bolts Disc using Alligator Serrated rotors
    1520(685 F; 835 R) + 186(93) = 1706

    CL version
    1460 + 270(135) = 1730

    1520 - 60(30grams per wheel lighter than the 6 bolt version to quote you)

    & for most part of it, made me confused... Just have to redo everything again. LoL!

    Cheers!



    Nota bene: figures are just claimed weight from Mavic's webby as well as your quote. Still I have yet to see realworld figures. 70-80grams is quite a savings for me but if we base it from the above equations WS is 'round 24ish grams (still some savings there), that's why I'm sorting things out here. & pardon me, I don't want to sound like I'm being a smart ass here... & I would truly appreciate, any help from you, my guru friends here! Just want every option be considered thoroughly before hitting the trigger. Thanks again.

    Got my 07' Crossmax SL (6 bolt version) last week; manage to weight it on my digital scale and took some pictures, before install it on my wife stumpy fsr.

    I'll post the weight and pictures on my tread over at "Wheels and Tires" section: -

    Hope that helps for someone asking about the weight.
