Mavic R-Sys Redux

I've blogged about the Mavic R-Sys twice before, and after being recalled in January they are back and already the carbon spokes are breaking again. Velonews.com Editor in Chief Ben Delaney had his front Mavic R-Sys wheel suffer a catastrophic failure, sending him into the ground breaking his shoulder blade. This wasn't the result of a crash or any impact, it simply failed exiting a corner. Carbon spokes just aren't a good idea.
