What can you tell me about Mavic CXP 14 Deep V Wheels?

Hi all,

I have a set of 700mm Mavic CXP 14 Deep V wheels with Mavic hubs that I took off of my cyclocross bike.

What can you tell me about these wheels?

When were the CXP 14's produced?

Were they intended as road or cyclocross wheels? They are very narrow.

What do you suppose these wheels weigh? I don't have a fishing scale yet.

Thanks

RFC

1) 700c
2) They're not Deep V, deep v is a velocity rim, it's a deep section rim
3) They are strong and they are heavy. 5-700g for rims.
4) 9-speed and older era.

As for total weight, just weigh them yourself yeesh.

it's very easy to weigh wheels, just take a one wheel in your hand.
If it feels heavy, then it's heavy.
If it feels light, then it's light.

alternatively, hold both in your hands and weigh yourself on a bathroom scale. now weigh yourself without the wheels.
subtract difference = weight of wheels.

What's the matter? Are the grownup and knowledgeable members of this forum away on Spring Break?

What a bunch of horsesh*t. Not what I have grown to expect from this forum. So, what you are telling me is that you don't know the answer to my simple question. Fine. No need to reply.

BTW:

I don't have a bathroom scale. I weigh myself at the gym. And, for wheels where .25 lb is huge, the bathroom scales are useless.

I did the same google search before posting.

What a collection of worthless fools.

Have a good weekend.

Dang, dude, it's just an old Mavic rim model. If the weight is so damn important take the wheels to a local shop that has a scale. That google does give you a lot of good information--did you read up and then still call it a Deep V or whether it was a wheel model?
