Mavic 700c Brake Post Adapter
Most people in the US market only know Mavic for their rims and wheels, and more recently their helmets and shoes. At times in the past, and mainly for the European market, Mavic has had all manner of bicycle components available, including entire groupsets. For tinkerers the pictured new old stock Mavic brake post adapter can be a handy piece to have available. Meant to convert a 26″ mountain frame to a 700c commuter the plate mounts on the existing brake posts and adds another set of them further up the stays or fork to match the larger diameter 700c rim. As far as I can tell these are long out of production, but available in the backs of dusty shops and through various web sources, even if some of them are asking collector-like prices for what was meant as an economical adapter.
