|dented rear wheel: what to get now?||goathead|

|I have a bianchi axis with mavic 32-spoke MA-3 rims. the front and rear rims now have dents in them from riding too hard on too low of pressure. historically I have been hard on rims, as every bike I've ever owned I would trash the rear rim in short order and end up replacing with a stonger version. I am 170 lbs. the front rim I've gotten to stay true, but the rear despite retensioning will not stay true after a ride in the hills. my friend at the LBS recomended the mavic open pro. I've heard good things about them, but was looking for other alternatives as well. any suggestions?

|GoatHead,sorry no suggestions other than Mavic Open Pro's. I've been riding a pair for 6 months now. 14/15 dblbutted 3cross pattern DT spokes, Ultegra hubs. I weigh about 210# and run them pretty hard road/offroad and their still running true.|| |
