Advice - Mavic R-Sys wheels [post recall model]


Recommended Posts

A year ago I purchased a set of HED Bastogne wheels for racing, which in this past year have spent more time in the LBS than on my bike due to broken spokes, hub problems and cracked rims. The LBS got a replacement set of HED's which looked very shoddy, so I refused them. They have now offered to replace them with a set of Mavic R-Sys wheels, or to refund me. I've now ridden the R-Sys wheels and found them to be nice stiff wheels that roll smoothly. I'm very aware of the chequered past of this model wheelset, and have read most of what I can find posted on the hub and elsewhere, which concerns me. I weigh on ave 74Kg and ride a Look585, to indicate some idea of weight, and I do ride in league events. My dilemna is whether to keep the wheels, or get a refund and buy something else. So I would like to get some opinions to help me decide ....
