28h super-aero rimsevant

I getting a new bike together (you to hell. You go to hell and you die bike thief!) anyways; I'm going w/ a centaur build group and was going to use 28 hole hubs (3x rear 1or2x front) and some super aero rims. I'm a big boy so I can justify extra weight over open pro's. I was thinking something along the lines of Mavic cxp 33's or campy vento rims. whadda you's thinks?

thanx

you'll see that he is already talking about a selection of heavier rims. The Deep V fits right in there on weight with the rims proposed.

I just picked up a set of CXP33's for $29/per (28h red) - the price was compelling enough for me to build another set of wheels... The Velocity Deep V will be more aero than the CXP33 and weigh a little more - I've had good luck with Velocity rims in the past.

My literature sez that only Record is available in 28 hole. It may be mistaken. I suggest Velocity deep V's to heavier riders and they have all been pleased with the wheel life.
