Morning,

I concur with Chuck on the specs he lists regarding the Mavic rims. I'll expand on it a bit as there was also the "Sport" model which was 21.5mm wide, did not have eyelets and required washers and weighed in at 390 grams. There was also the "Extra Legere" which weighed in at a mere 269 grams, was 20mm wide and had double eyelets. The Extra Legere also had a gold anodized finish whereas all the other were polished aluminum.

My experience differs from Chuck's recollection however as I've only ever seen a new or original PX-10E with Mavic rims. On the other hand though, PX-10LE's routinely (but not always) had Super Champion rims. I'm not saying Chuck is wrong mind you, just that my experience has been different.
