Hi. I recently bought a bike ('06 Scott CR1 Pro) and it came with Mavic Ksyrium Elite wheels. The bike was hardly ridden.
I decided to compare those wheels with the ones from my old bike which are Vuelta Corsa Lites. I gave both a good equal spin and the Mavics stop long before the Vueltas. Front and back. I tried with either arm spinning each one and I did it several times so the results are consistent.
Both use cartridge bearings. The bearings on the Mavics are silky smooth so I know they are ok. Is there some adjustment I need to really watch or do I spring for new bearings? Am I missing something?
