20 Most Recent Mavic Crossmax Sl Disc Wheelset Questions & Answers


Too take the Freehub off of the hub body is fairly simple on Mavic. You will need either Mavic Mineral oil, a lightweight mineral oil or other very light lubricant when you are done with cleaning. This can be tricky to find and you may need to enlist the help of your local bike shop to get some or the equivelant.

Here is the direct link to the Mavic service instructions with nice clear pictures and "how-to's".

Look at your manual for a troubleshooting guide, there usually is a reset on them. But, if all else fails, call the dealer you bought it from and maybe they have an idea what the problem is. At my store I try to keep a copy of the manuals to be able to help the customer out, but I unfortunately do not carry Mavic computers, only their wheels. I am attending the largest dealer bike show in Las Vegas tomorrow and I will talk to Mavic there and ask if anyone has an answer.This is a huge show and I will not be back until Saturday. And will let you know.

The rear wheel has a greater load and is subjected to higher tangential forces than the front wheel. Consequently spoke nipple wear and spoke breakage usually show up first in the rear wheel. If a full truing job hasn't stopped the loosening, you have two options: remove the tire, tube and rim strip and apply thread-lock to each spoke end, then immediately re-true the wheel, or rebuild with a new set of spokes and nipples. Given that you've already had one nipple go out completely, I'd go with new parts; the nipples probably have worn-out threads so thread-lock would only work temporarily.

I've seen wheels with solder applied to the spoke nipples under the rim strip - this works until you need to true the wheel to correct a minor rim bend. The solder also adds rotating weight, which is not a good thing.

It's hard to believe a shop can't deal with what sounds like loosening spokes. OTOH, we Clydesdales are tougher on wheels than the lil guys. I used to break a lot of spokes under high torque demands, especially on several sets of Spinergy Spox wheels, then I bought a Park spoke tension gauge and meticulously trued and tensioned all the wheels on all my bikes. Haven't had a spoke issue since then.

Or you could get an old set of Spinergy Rev-X like I did a long time ago before I figured out the tension thing. If you can break or bend them you are not human.

Name the brand and model. Try to find the company's support section online.

Nope. Campi and Shimano casette bodies are TOTALLY INcompatible, BUT I have had good luck with finding Campi casettes online (eBay) and having no interchange problems between my wheels and Shimano or Campi 9-speed shifters and derailleurs on several bikes. I switch wheels without concern for the other hardware.

http://desc.shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=campagnolo+8-speed+cassette&_sacat=0&_odkw=campi+8-speed+cassette&_osacat=0&_trksid=p3286.c0.m270.l1313&LH_TitleDesc=1&_rdc=1

Within Campi there may be incompatibilities, though. If your wheels have an 8-speed Campi cassette now I think you'll be ok.

Has the hole warped, or worn?
Either way, you will have trouble with a standard size spoke!

Ask you Bicycle shop dealer if he could sell you a spoke the next size larger in gauge, but the same length-- And can yo determine WHY the hub has warped?
Perhaps there is somethig else going on, that needs checking, too--
Maybe you had best show the problem to your Bicycle repair man...

www.mavic.com go directly to there website, they have tech manuals for all their products and if you can't find it then contact customer service and they will be able to help you.

Or just take the wheel into your local shop that sells Mavic, they can order the parts for you and either you or them can install, not too hard to rebuild the mavic wheels.

In your manual it will be under SETTING YOUR ODOMETER. the manual does not specifically say, but it should be one of the flashing choices when you are setting values.

Mavic Cycling | Answered on Dec 26, 2010


A new spoke should be around $1.00 +/-. It's better to replace it, as it sounds like the spoke nipple might be stripped, or at least compromised. It's an easy job, just follow the interweaving pattern of the other spokes. If you take the old one to the bike store, they can match it up exactly.
