I just picked up a set of these mavic sew-up rims in great shape. I got them as part of a package with clement tubulars and tubasti glue. I really bought them mainly for tires and glue, which will be put on the Ochsner restoration. I know Mavic monthlery rims are supposed to be nice and one of the lighter tubular rims but not much else. These have the newer yellow and purple label not the old school red. Any info. you can give on these is appreciated. Particularly looking for rareity, weight, age, and approximate value.
I always get confused if they are Montlhery or Monthlery
rims, named for a suburb of Paris and site of a race track where the
French Grand Prix was held in the 1920s and '30s.
There were 2 models Route and Legere models.
Route(s) were 21.5mm in width and weighed approximately 420gm.
The Legere model was 20mm wide and weighed 310gm.
There were also I believe variations of the above (anodized gold?)
Its a precursor of the GP4 tubular rim, very strong.
Not particularly rare but a nice rim.
