Oh yeah, those Mavic dork disks are almost as good as the old chrome dinner plates. Love the spoke clips on those.

It's like Mavic figured they weren't dorky enough, and had to push the envelope.

I'm pretty fond of the Yaw FD, and I've had no problems with my Red RD; it just works, using less material than Shimano.
