What I was interested in was which year did Mavic introduce the original SSC group (144 BCD crankset) and the model numbers of those parts? I think that a tout Mavic was available in 1978 and was the all silver anodized " Professional" line. What I am curious about is when did the green /bronze/ gray anodizing color,the color which I can notith name, I believe to be the indicator of SSC components was introduced? I would also like to know what made the SSC hubset different then the 500 "Professional" model, and available brakesets and model numbers,ie (Mavic)Modolo speedy,(Mavic) Modolo Professional. and the Mavic SSC/ Modolo Master. Kinda technical but I hope some one out there can help.

Dan, for guys like you and me with lots of technical questions on MAVIC (I'm a big fan) I put together a reprint of nine catalogs:

MAVIC...A Brief History of MAVIC Bicycle Components (Une Brève Histoire des Pièces de Vélo MAVIC) -- 422 pages, covers Mavic components from 1977 through 1995, nine catalogs, ten brochures, and two workshop manuals showing how to service all Mavic components, plus a Mavic Timeline, an invaluable tool for dating your bike and its parts. Color cover. $ 50

It's available on my web site:

I'll pay the shipping!
