The mavic technical site is password protected which I think is very shabby given I paid money for a new rim. If they really are keeping this info a secret the people at Mavic must really not give $#!% about their customers. Bontrager seems to have an owners manual for example.

http://www.tech-mavic.com/tech-mavic/

Actually I do not see any contacts on the mavic site.

Good Luck.

Thank you for the mavic site info. While I understand why some of the business oriented stuff is secret, it seems the 'Terms of Use' ect are invalid unless a customer has access to it, not to mention the mysterious wear indicator. Thanks again.
