First up is a review on the Mavic Cosmic Carbon 40 that was found on the bikerumor web site. So what does all this weigh? Surprisingly, the front is 670g and the rear comes in at 875g for a total of 1545g. The competitor most referenced by Mavic, the Zipp 303, comes in 70g lighter.

Next up is more trickle down effect in the industry. Shimano is introducing the Ultegra 6800 group - 11 Speed in the Ultegra line to compete with SRAM's Force 11 Speed Groups. MSRP of the 6800 is $1,250 compared to $1,360 for Force.
Are you interested in friction quantities with Ceramic bearing jockey pulleys? If so, click on THIS LINK. I do not have a scientific mind but the basic premise of the report is that these specific bearings lost minimal functionality after being used for a season.
