Is there somewhere I can look for info on the rim brake crossmax wheels ?

In particular I am looking for time lines / technical info / design changes / improvements etc.

Thank you :D

WD :D

Consider yourself asked ;-) :lol:

I am trying to ID some wheels I have just bought (in particular the year) so I can gather the tech info / service documents / keep an eye out for any special tools I need :D
Info known so far :

Sidewall (ceramic) ID : Crossmax SL SSC
All silver - spokes, hubs etc
Flat fat bladed spokes
Radial front
Radial / 2x rear
Machined rims between spokes
UST
Weight (calibrated scales) - front 651.0g / rear 852.7g

The hubs look to adjusted from one side only via a collar with pin holes. Front adjuster is ano black, rear looks to be Ti :D

They have serial number stickers but the Mavic tech section on the website either doesn't recognise them or doesn't work :-(

Pics soon !

Any ideas ?

Cheers,

WD :D

Crossmax SSC SL I think, from about 2007.

I have a pair at home, waiting for a suitable build! tool info here:

Sound like the last generation before Crossmax SL SSC in red. Would make them a bit earlier than 2007. Am thinking 2005-6. But may have continued through 2007 too.

OK here are the pictures :

The adjustment collar (I think this is Ti) :

Image

This had some surface rust on it but it cleaned off with a spray of GT85 and a light scrub with a toothbrush so I suspect it might have been transfer from the cassette ? – I don’t know what material it is ? :

Image

Serial numbers if it helps the ID :

Image

Image

Spoke count / lacing patterns:

Image

The geeky alignment shot :oops: :lol: :

Image

I do suspect now that they might be 97’s, would you agree ?

Cheers,

WD :D

Alloy spokes are a phenomenon that appeared in the noughties....

97 Crossmaxes looked nothing like these.

I still think these are 2003-5 or so.

Thanks for your input 8)
