|Anybody know where I can find a pair? I suppose finding them at a good price would be asking too much, but one can always hope.

|Excel used to have a bunch of these they were selling cheap, but I haven't seen the ad for some time so they might be out. Probably worth checking into though.
|It was the red CXP33s that Excel had on closeout (nm)||jtolleson|

|I think only black, blue, silver, and ceramic are made these days (they dropped red).
|Fir or Ambrosio in red, maybe? (nm)||Spunout|

|yes ... both make red low profle rims .....
20 odd grams heavier than mavics for either but am very happy with my FIR's.
looking for a set of gold clincher rims for a little project - mavic used to make 'em but boy is it proving difficult to find some....

|I've seen the hubs and now I know what color rims. What are you going to put these on? Buy the way Spirito, you're falling into a trap. I thought this project was because you wanted an "everyday" bike that you could leave anywhere. This is sounding almost a special as the Merckx.|

|No luck so far. I might just go with CPX 33s in red. I wonder if the handling or road feel would be any different. I love my Open Pros, but they're getting a little beat up, and I've got this red thing goin' on now.

|How about these?

|I really like the looks of the Heliums, but I'm a bigger guy and am worried about the low spoke count. Also, I kinda want to go new.
|Ken, have you tried...||Dave Hickey|

|Running a "wanted to buy" in rec.bicycles.marketplace? I'm sure there is someone that has them in 32h red. I place an ad for new old stock 1990 Dura Ace track parts and received many replies.|
|Hey, now that's an idea!||Ken of Fresno|
Oct 7, 2002 10:15 AM
|I may just try that if I don't go with CPXs.

|i think they have some of their rims in a red anodized. made by ambrosio i believe.|
|Try Schwab. They show them in their catalog. (nm)||12x23|
