For those of you who prefer your drinks shaken and not stirred, who watch reruns of Navy Seals Untold Stories/Future Weapons/Wings over the Pacific, or find yourself inexplicably cleaning your bike before you go out for a short ride. The Mavic Reflex tubular is designed for racing, but some gents just prefer the ride. Others love the hands-on feel of mounting their tires, and the resulting gratification of applying their own meticulous expertise.
We’re offering to build these wheels with Shimano 105, Ultegra, or Dura-Ace 8/9/10 spd compatible hubs, laced three cross with your choice of spokes and nipples. Aesthetically speaking, these wheels will look sweet with black or red alloy nipples, but personal preferences vary. At first glance the wheel set weights don't look super exciting, keep in mind that Shimano hubs aren’t for weight weenies. But they do offer a ton of durability, and are relatively easy to maintain. The actual weight of the Reflex CD rim is exceptionally light at approx. 380g.
