if i'm right the SLs are about 100g heavier than the new SLRs.eurorider said:I think they are the same weight if you don't include the skewers. SL has steel skewers, SLR has Ti skewers.
when you see what some people pay for these items on Ebay you are wise to pickup the new SLRs.velo bum said:The 07 sl & slrs are the same wheels, except the slr's come w/ti skewers & wheel bags(& are black). I switched from the 06 sl's to the 07 sl's, both 6 bolt, and going from memory it was like 40 something for the rear & 50 something for the front, grams less then the 06. Sorry, but my memory is bad & I didn't write it down.
i don't know the SLs weight since i find them so butt ugly that i simply didn't want to know. that was a big step back in design. same for the roadwheels.eurorider said:AnthemRacer asked about the weight difference between 07 SL and SLR. He's obviously talking about discs wheels nino since there is no 07 SL v-brake... In which case, I was correct that there is no weight difference between 07 SL and 07 SLR. The only difference is SLR has Ti skewers which are a bit lighter. If you use lightweight skewers like Tune, then you wouldn't care about that anyway.
The silver is so hideous eh? Or maybe you won't make as much profit on the SL compared to the SLR?
maybe you should check again then...eurorider said:I think any sensible person who wants Crossmax Disc would go for the SL. You have to think if a change in colour and Ti skewers warrants the price difference. And not everyone wants to be riding on the same black wheels.
Your prices are nothing special. Actually quite high considering you operate out of the MTBR forums and "do it on the side". You are a sculpter by profession afterall. There's always better prices elsewhere...
Ok. got it. But im interested in the v-brake version: SL's or SLR's. I'm trying to find all the dferences between these wheels: rims, rim widths, hub widths, hubs internals.. etc. we know allready that the QR are titanium.Dan Gerous said:Mavic's rim width measures are the internal width.
People seem very confused when it's so simple:
06 and before: Crossmax SL, available in rim or disc brake (6-bolts or centerlock) versions, 19mm internal width. Also available with a Lefty front wheel.
07: Crossmax SL and SLR disc: same wheels except the skewers. Since both are the exact same wheels, they both have the new hubs and narrower 17mm rims and are lighter than the previous years. Only the SLR are available in rim brake version and in Lefty front versions...
well then it's even easier - there is no rim brake version of the SL for 2007 so your only choice is the SLR.sergio_pt said:Ok. got it. But im interested in the v-brake version: SL's or SLR's.
