From Mavic Ksyrium SL to Williams System 50

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

From Mavic Ksyrium SL to Williams System 50

First ride is tomorrow in the morning. These aren't the newer System 58's, but they weighed 1590g on my scale. Pretty respectable for a 50mm carbon clincher.

I already know what your review will say, so I do not share the anticipation expressed above.

so why the switch if the Ksyriums are lighter...and very durable? Was this a move for the Wooosh factor?
