hey all

tryed posting the the FAQ thread but only said moderators can post??

anyway

bought some rims mavic m231 old cd finish ones which i presume are 26" but theres a sticker with 650w on it

i know mtb are 599 in old money?

is it a track rim or a mtb rim?

ive held it again my 230TIB rimand its the same, just curious about the decal. .if it was a 650 front would it be obvious from a mtb rim?

650's are usually timetrial front or triathlon wheels

MTB are 559 on the etro sizing thingy. The 650's vary according to the letter, but its lost me, couldn't find a W.
