Mavic Responds to VeloNews

Recently, VeloNews posted an article regarding editor Ben Delaney’s crash on some post-recall Mavic R-SYS wheels. It seemed to be an unannounced, no warning, catastrophic failure of the wheel.  The link is below.

I was about post on this issue when I read BikeSnobNYC’s post.

It can’t be said any better than that.  Remember kids, if you are riding R-SYS and have a flat and your wheels shatters from the simple flat, its not Mavic fault.
