DuraAce 7800 rims or substitute

I've posted in a couple different places hoping to find some knowledge. I bought a hubset from a wrecked DA7800 wheelset, and I don't seem to find replacement rims available online. Anybody know where I can find them, or what a good substitute might be?

I have seen them come up on Ebay and they are good rims (I have a set of DA 7800s). My guess is that you could also go with Mavic or Rolf rims as well to keep the stiffness going. Or, since you are in the racing forum, just build up Zipp 404s on them - the Pave rims!!

Um, if the hubs are actually from a 7800 wheelset then they've got nipples at the hub, so I'm not sure you can use any rim...but you should ask around

Apparently my guess is wrong. Still, I have seen the rims on Ebay.
