|Ops weight 425 grams. Anything lighter and durable (i weight 195 lbs).
PS1:I dont care about aero shape.
PS2: Please post some brands that i can find in Europe if possible.

|Try looking for Excellights. While marginally lighter than the OP, IMHO they're better made. And yes, they're an easy find in Europe.|

|The Velocity Aerohead has a very small profile, but it gives the rim a lot of strength. Lighter than OPs by 10 gm, stronger, and absolutely click free. I don't know about their availabilty in the EU/UK. Readily available by US mail order, so you may find overseas shipping a possibility.|

|check out Campy and Fir. And regarding you post above, I'd go with 14/15s. Good luck.|

|The Open Pro's are notorious for a clicking/ticking noise. I had mine for over a year before it started. It appears the sound is from the eyelet/nipple interface. Just a bit of lube at the nipple fixes it. I've even heard that the sound comes from a specific set of eyelets, the five or so around the stickers. Other than that they are really fine rims.|

|The american classic 350 rims are a 350g 700c clincher that sell for around $50... not sure on durability though|| |
