Mavic Ellipse wheelset?
why hello there!
just curious if anyone here was knowledgeable about these wheels....
Now i will say i have done some googling and read some reviews here and there....
BUT most tend to be for the 2010 model, im sort of wondering if anyone has any input regarding the new 2011 model.
Mavic says the new model is slightly lighter....they state the wheelset is 1895 as opposed to the 2010 which is more like 1995 (i THINK...could be wrong)....
why am i asking? well im trying to decide between buying someone's used set of 2010s or just forking over the extra dough for a new pair of the 2011s....with a hefty discount code to a online retailer, so it wont be full msrp.
lets just say the price difference is about 100 bucks.
also, i will also say i think i slightly prefer the decals on the 2011
and in case you are wondering, this is for a bianchi pista concept frame ive had hanging up in my room for a few months. been researching/trolling ebay for a wheelset.
I plan to use this build to actually go ride it @ the velodrome, probably once a month. but also for road ride/commute.
anywho thanks for your time
