Obviously 217's and I think they did x222 as well, but were there any other rims that Mavic did in Sunset ano finish? I think they only did that finish for a couple of years anyway, shame really, I rather like it.

Did they not do the 517 as well?

^^^^^^^
I knew they did 517's in citron, I didn't know they did a sunset version as well.

Anymore? I know there are some sunset fetishists out there, utahdog springs to mind!

Perhaps I would get more attention if I changed the title to 'Mavic sunset rims, grease or not!!!!' :lol:

Pretty sure they're citron Wook. I monitor Ebay at least once a day looking for sunset rims. Last November I actually won a nos pair of rims only for Yodel to loose them!
