there were at least 3 different types of mavic monthlery rims. besides monthlery 'pro' i have seen monthlery 'legere' with red/gold label at a weight of 340 grams (with eyelets) and monthlery 'route' (all red label) which i guess was (as in italian "strada") at the lower end of the line, where 'pro' and 'legere' were the lighter / top ones...?? does any one on the list know the difference and purpose more exactly? is there a timeline of production anywhere?

i m lookin for some time in vain for a pair of monthlery legere 32-hole. there is not much NOS around as it seems. if anyone knows a source of these i'd be grateful.
