Question about Mavic Ksyrium Elite Wheelset

1 Answer

Can you replace the rear Campagnolo 8 speed cassette body with a 9/10 speed Campagnolo body on a Mavic Cosmic Expert tubular rear wheel? Please disregard the Ksyrium Elite Wheelset as it was the only Mavic product which would allow the question to be asked

Mavic Cosmic Carbon SLS Rearwheel 2014 - Rattling noise.


a common problem is to have a spoke nipple or some carbon flash that is loose inside the rim.

Take off the tire and rim strip,
and hold the wheel with the valve hole at the bottom.
shake and rattle the piece, until it falls out of the valve hole.

Another option is to squirt some spray foam into the rim,
and shake the wheel until the piece sticks in the foam.

Use very little foam,
as the more you use, the more off balance the wheel can become
and you can fill spoke or valve holes, making service difficult.

What does the small screw next to the higher jockey wheel adjust ?


Why limit the question or answer to just one screw?

It's for body tension. Like the B-Screw on other derailleurs.

I have been given a set of Mavic NKSIUM Race wheels currently fitted with a Campag Cassette. Are these hubs Shimano compatable, as I want to fit a 8 speed Shimano Cassette Ian...


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.

I am need of new tires. The rims are Mavic, but I’m confused about sizing. The tire is a tubular. I think the size is 27 inch. How to I make sure I get the right size?


If you have a tubular tire (also called a sew-up), and you know that you have full-size wheels (either 700c or 27 inch), you need a 700c tubular. Tubular tires only come in a few sizes and the most common is the 700c. A tubular tire is a unique type of tire that usually has a tube sewn inside. This gives the tubular a round cross section and means that it must be glued onto the rim.

700c and 27 inch are actually different sizes (27 inch is slightly larger diameter than 700c), but they're often confused because they're so close and they're both found on road bikes - or have been over the years. These days, the common road-bike wheel and tire size is 700c. But, people still sometimes mistakenly refer to it as 27 inch, which was popular 25 to 30 years ago.

So, the bottom line is, if you get a tubular called a "27 inch" or "700c," it will be the same size and it will fit your wheel just fine. The size that you don't want is "650c." That size will be too small for your wheels. If you have something besides a tubular tire (if your tires aren't glued onto the rims, you don't have tubulars), to determine the size simply look carefully at the sidewalls. You'll find the tire size marked there if you look closely.

Campagnolo Record 10 sp. short cage rear drlr.+ 13-26 cassette


You don't say if this happens in the BIG ring, small ring or both. If it's just the big ring I'd suspect there isn't enough chain length.

Cross chaining is unnecessary and bad for your drivetrain. I never go more than one cog past the center of my cassette opposite the chainring I use.

HELLO, I HAVE A DURA ACE 7900 MODEL CASSETTE AND WOULD LIKE TO PUT IT ON A KSYRIUM SL RIM, DO I HAVE TO PUT THE SPACER ON IT BEFORE THE WHOLE CASSETTE GOES ON? THE CASSETTE IS A 12-25 GEAR.


In my experience with Shimano cassettes on Mavic wheels, the answer is "yes" but i had a mountain wheel and cassette. The only way to know is to put it on and see if there is slop in the fitment. If there is, then you have your answer. i also had this problem with Mavic: i had to adjust the high and low settings on my rear derailleur because of the awkward spacing of the Mavic freehub. Just something you should be aware of in case you have difficulty with shifting after the install. By the way - although they are inferior cassettes, SRAM cassettes seem to fit Mavic freehubs better.

Freewheel on Mavic SSC-SL turns with tire/wheel rotation


Not sure if you ever got a response. I can help with half the issue. These Mavic SSC-SL wheels are a breeze to disassemble the rear hub (I've done so many times). I have these wheels on road bikes AND cross bikes. You DON'T need (nor want to use a vise). Yes, the one side is a 5 mm allen key. While the other side seems like it has nothing, you can actually (with your hand) simply grab the black axle and pull it away/off the hub. It will be a bit stubborn, but trust me, it comes off. There is an O-ring on the inside that simply keeps it sealed and on. Once you have that part off, you now insert a 10 mm allen key. With the 5mm in the other side, you can now twist and remove the entire axle and freehub. Careful, the freehub will now come off the axle, exposing the seals, a washer, AND 2 pawls that are in place by springs. Be careful not to lose the springs.

There's not much to it. Now simply inspect, lube and reassemble. Btw, this is also how you change your wheel from a Shimano hub to a campy hub.

Hope that helps.

Corey
