Strengths:    Price, strength, eyelets

Weaknesses:    wear indicator

Bottom Line:   
This is for a 36h Open Sport laced with DT 14ga spokes to a 105 rear hub that I trued and tensioned. The wheel holds up fine, no complaints about weight or strength. However, the continuous external wear indicator is bad, doing what you might suspect - creating a ridge in the brake pad which in turn make the pad stick to the rim after hard braking. The ridge has to be cut off periodically to fix this.

notes from the weekend: Mavic Open Sport, Handspun wheels, Conti 4-Season

I'm building up a Ritchey Breakaway and just put together a wheelset for it. I had a rear wheel that had been lying around ever since the Mavic MA3 rim failed around the eyelets. I ordered a new Mavic Open Sport rim for it ($40 at Bikeman) and simply moved the spokes over. Total piece of cake. The n ... Read More »

Open Sport/CR-18 pretty much the same?

They look about the same to me on paper. Any big differences? What I`m after is a budget wheelset for JRA in town, frequent 40-60 mile day trips, and occasional light offroad. I`m lightweight, but not very good at avoiding obstacles and have no interest in racing. My current tires are 32mm Pasel ... Read More »

Mavic Open Sport, CXP22 or CXP23, any good?

Hi, I need to get some new budget wheels for my commuting bike. I've now built three sets but don't intend to race on these ones. I've been pretty happy with Open Pros and CXP33 but am looking at the more budget options of Open Sport or CXP22, I prefer rims with eyelets which edges them ahead of ... Read More »

Roll-y Poll-y on Open Sport rims?

I figure I'll finally add that three-mile fire road to my 13 mile commute later on this year. Just a gravel levee-top with nice "smoothish" paths where the service vehilces use the road. This three mile section will remove the last little bit of street riding on my American River Parkway commute... ... Read More »
