I'm looking into buying a set of Mavic Speedcity's and I'm wondering what the consensus is. I don't do much off road riding... although I'd like to, and the appeal of these wheels to me is their 700c rim size. No offense guys but i don't dig on the 26" rims, i prefer the larger wheel. Mainly what i want them for is a bombproof wheel set (which other reviews suggest them to be) that will handle anything from subset drops to trailblazing. My other question probably goes out to owners/previous owners of the wheel set... I'd be putting them on my normal MTB and i don't have a disk set-up so I'd need to get the adapter Mavic makes to extend your v-brake mount, has anyone used this or does anyone know how much they cost/where to get them? I havn't found much as far as the adaptor goes.
Also, if i decided not to get the speed city... out of curiosity... what would be the major downside in using say... a ksyrium for the front wheel with the same set-up as the speed city (v-brake adaptor)? My guess is maybe the hub wouldn't put up with the pain? I should add that the bike is full suspension..
Any info/answers to questions is appreciated, thanks in advance.
