Cycle Show 2009 part 3 - Mavic and FSA

Mavic had some really nice stuff on the display this year. The most impressive of the lot was the Crossmax Ultimate wheels with carbon spokes and tubular rims. If/when Mavic chooses to make them available to the public I’m sure they’ll cost an absolute fortune!

FSA were showing off a couple of their new 386 cranksets (3 chainring bolts and an 86mm bolt circle diameter). I believe they’re available with BB30 or the normal MegaExo style bottom bracket and either 27/40T or 27/42T chainring combinations for a 2x9 setup. I think the main idea is loosing weight and reducing the inner chainring size compared to other 2 speed cranksets. Without a 180mm option FSA won't see any of my money though.
