i ride a heavy bike, don't even want ot weigh it.. i can't buy another right now but i thought of building lighter wheels.
my pair consists of old dura ace hubs laced to campagnolo omega v rims and michelin select sport tires.
i'm considering mavic cxp's rims and a pair of kevlar tires.. durability and comfort are main concerns since i commute everyday on this bike.what do you think?
thanks

Depends which Mavic CXP you get. The 21 you should forget it. Lots of stories of broken spokes and truing problems. The 30s and 33s don't seem to have had those problems. I don't know if it is rim strength or what.
