French wheel, and these days clothing, manufacturer Mavic offers an almost bewildering choice of jackets. I reckon the Mavic Echappée jacket is the pick of the bunch for most British winter weather riding though, with an insulating softshell construction that works right down to zero degrees.
I'm narrowing my choices regarding a new bike, but have a dilemma. Two of those on the shortlist are a Trek Madone 4.7 and a Canyon Ultimate CF 9.0. Extremely similar geometry (58 in the Trek = 60 in the Canyon), both full carbon good quality frames, both with Shimano Ultegra. However, the Trek has Bontrager Race Tubeless Ready wheels, which the LBS tell me are "pretty much equivalent to Ksyrium Elites". Is this about right? The Canyon actually has Ksyrium Elites.
Unfortunately I have to depart with my beloved Ksyrium Elite wheelset as I've upgraded to a set of Cosmic Carbones and they're far too good to go on my winter bike so they have to move on.
