Thanks for the tip, Dan. Looks like those intrepid folks in the mtbr forums took a pic of a new Mavic 26" mountain bike rear disc wheel, labeled 'CrossMax SLR'. You know only good things come from SLR monikers. The CrossMax SL's were introduced in 2003 as a "Super-Light" successor to the CrossMax wheelset. Not the lightest wheelset available at the time, but they were pretty darn stiff and light enough for most. The SLR promises to be an even lighter version of the SL, making many wonder what the 'R' could possibly stand for. Any ideas? Hmmm, let's see... CaRRRRRbon hubs? KevlaRRRRRR spokes? Black and lighter are definitely the themes at Mavic for 2007. All owners of black bikes rejoice! Black is...um, back!
