- Which road rims?

Mavic Open Pro on your hub of choice, cannot go wrong really?
also get a Mavic rim rubber and clean / wipe the rims down regularly, and you will enjoy excellent braking performance and long durability of rim and pads
I personally run the Open Pro on Hope Pro III hubs with Sapim D/B spokes and brass nipples.
Found this wheelset to be light enough for fast recreational riding, very efficient under power and gives a sure braking response on fast downhills
but also shrugs off the everyday effects of our “wonderful” roads which are festooned with potholes and cracks!Posted 4 years ago
Continuing from yesterday’s question, being new to the world of road (SS) wheels, what rims should I be looking at. On-One has some Miche Primatos on Weinmann DP18s, but reading around, the suggestion is the DP18s are heeeeavvy. So, what’re alternatives around similar prices?

for the record last two sets of wheels have been open pros, that will be 7-8 years? maybe 40-50,000miles? never had any problems no cracked rim, no undue rim wear. just got an Ambrosio Excellight to try something different, no comments to make yet as waiting to get it built up.
spend the money on decent tyres, they make more difference than rims.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t know why people continue to recommend open pros etc when Velocity A23s and the H Plus Son range are now easily available.
maybe because open pros have a track record and are easy to get? how long so Velocity a23 and h plus son rims last, do they crack around the eyelets, etc etc. details you only find out after a couple of years.Posted 4 years ago
