|With all this talk about OP's click it makes me hesitate using them in a upcoming rebuild. So looking here I got some information on the MA14's. But I am looking for more the build characteristics, I have built wheels with velocity and mavic and have had no problems so how do these compare ? How about riding characteristics ? durability ? Any other alternatives to open pros ?
Good sources for getting them ?
I may still go with open pros but I have some time before I make a choice.

|I think you mean the ME14A. I have 5-6 thousand miles on a set I had built with 32 double-butted spokes to "new" 105 hubs.
I like them a lot. They've stayed very true and round, in spite of my substantial weight (190+/-) and in spite of having been slammed into a curb once hard enough to ovalize the bike's head tube.
Appearance-wise, the silver ones that I have are rather plain...no real fancy stickers or angles or anything...but they work very well. I'd say they're durable, ride well...dunno about building, since I had a local shop do that.
Oh--and no clicking. If it's wet, they do take on water (but what doesn't?), and at low speeds the resulting slosh can be annoying until they dry out.

|I have both can't tell the difference never experienced wobbles. But then I never jump curbs, roll over potholes, etc.|
