    Recently got a rim for a 2010 ksyrium sl. Was told you can’t get them for wheels much older than that. You’ll need to go to a lbs that does Mavic stuff and ask if they can order some.

    long since sold out ime – they were 90 quid each and invariably they needed new spokes as the old ones would be solid

    add in the metal spoke key as the plastic one they give you is not suitable

    and your getting close to a new set at bargain prices – do not underestimate the cost of mavic spokes – used to come in packs of “sides” at a cost of 40 quid.

    on the plus side – very easy wheel to build if you can get hold of the spares. We ended up getting some of the last ones from CRC as mavic couldnt supply them and didnt foresee them coming back into stock.

    This. That stopped me buying Ksyriums a couple of times when I was offered good deals on sets.

    Should be available for 5 years after last year of production

    The spares aren’t that badly priced, but IMO shops take the piss in expecting over 100% mark on spare parts (i.e. replacement rim costs about £40 trade)

    are you trade nin – my experiance in says they are far from 40 quid trade to your average shop + postage (from france) +VAT

    how ever if you have a source for 40 quid delivered to my shop with the vat paid ill happily take in my mates wheels and rebuild them 😉

    Ive spent a bit of time trying to track down older rims, no luck I’m afraid.

    Got a old set of the above wheels. Running nice and smooth, but they need new rims. Where can I get a set? I think they are the 2008 model, might even be earlier. Seems a shame to bin then…….

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Mavic Ksyrium Elite 2009 rims are sill available.

    Are your wheels Black or Silver?
    If they are black, are the Mavic M7 rim nipples black or silver?
