Musical Wheel sets and Mavic Ksyrium Review

Got a new set of wheels, so it was time for a bunch of rearranging. New Mavic Kryriums went on the Six, the Aksium wheels from the Six went onto the 'cross bike, and the tubular cross wheels are going to Community Cycles!



The Ksyriums ride really well - stiff and responsive. They have flat bladed spokes that are more affected by the wind, which takes some getting used to. The only real problem are strong gusts. The stiffness I mentioned made a more noticeable diference on the descents. When coming down Flagstaff, they flexed less than my Aksiums and were much more confidence inspiring.  So far I'm really happy with them!
