Best place to buy Wheels-D/A hubs with Open Pros?ds5200
Feb 10, 2003 9:54 AM
Looking to get a extra set of wheels. I want to go with a traditional set D/A hubs and Open Pros- 32 hole. Any advice on setup and who to buy from mail order? I'm 175 and currently (last 2 years) ride Rolf Vector Pros with no problems. Thanks
Many people...PsyDoc

...are very happy buying such a wheelset from Colorado Cyclist or Excel Sports. I had Excel build up a set of wheels and have been very happy with them.
My vote for Colorado Cyclisttrout_bum

They build them, I buy them. My weight runs between 190-225. I have pair OP/Chris King, 1 pair OP/Dura Ace, 1 pair OP/Ultegra. I have probably 15K miles total. I have 14/15 ga on 32 hole, 2X on fronts, 2X/3X on rear for the first two, 3X all the way around on the Ultegras. All alloy nipples. No broken spokes, no need to true any of them! My oldest pair from CC is Matrix ISO on DA hubs. About 10K miles over 10 years, no broken spokes, finally minor truing needed and two brass nipples are frozen. I'll replace the nipples someday and re-true. Right now I just ride the OPs. CC are great wheel builders, prompt service, good price. Last a long time.
