    Looking for: Mavic Crossmax SLR Lefty 29er/650b wheelset

    Is anyone selling a Mavic Crossmax SLR Lefty 29er/650b wheelset?
    I've been on the hunt for these for about a year and no luck.

    I will attach a photo of the wheelset.


    There is a 29er lefty front wheel on ebay but I'm looking for the set.

    Thanks
    Jake

    29 and 650B are not the same thing...which do you want? And you're probably not gonna have any luck posting a 'want to buy' on the forum.
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards

    Yes I know they're different. My bike is running 650b at the moment but can fit 700x33 maximum so I'm looking for either the 650b or 29er wheelset.

    Unfortunately, they're very rare - particular for a lefty too. I've been looking for almost 2 years with no luck hence just posting in the forum.

    Why are you looking for these specific wheels? If there is a lefty front on ebay it might a good idea to get it since it is less common than the rear.

    Yes I might have to grab it. I don't want to end up with just the front wheel and no matching rear though. Well, I want this wheelset because I had a set before back in 2013 and loved them. They'd just be perfect for my build too.

    You've obviously never read any of my or the many other rants about how bad Mavic wheels are.

    None of your rants....I'm new here.
    I've used Mavic before, I've used DT Swiss before, I've used Hunt before. Some wheels have been better than others but I think often theres a lot of unconscious bias towards or against wheel manufacturers and of course actual data. Might just be my luck but the most miles I've done on a wheel was a Mavic and that was an XM419 which was about 40000 miles which came stock on my cannondale slate. Never used their SLR wheels to the same extent though so can't comment on that.

    I'll be trying some Just Riding Along wheels next as I've not used these yet.
