I run the King ISO hubs on Mavic XM819 rims but I run the DT SuperComp spokes. And like Shiggy says - nothing beats a good hand build.

I've always liked the bling of Mavic wheel "systems" but if a part of the systems breaks - you have only once place to get the parts... Mavic... Not all shops stock freehubs or spokes for CrossMax wheels.

yeah. and not all shops are mavic dealers... meaning they can't order you spokes for broken spoked mavic wheels either.
