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.

Thanks.

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.

What is clicking in the rims, and how is caused?

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
