Mavic MA2 Rims
Can anybody tell me anything about these rims - I have one on a late 80's early 90's Raleigh that i bought off eBay as a fixed gear conversion project.
Very good box rim with double steel eyelets and a reasonably low weight. Not so aero, but light; around 460 g. in actual weight.

Watch out for rust on the eyelets since this may make noises when rubbing against the spokes. So remember to give the eyelets/nipples a drop of oil every year or less, depending of how corrosive a climate you live in.
This bike actually lives in London, chained up at either Euston station, or my office in the city, so probably very corrosive - mainly exhaust fumes...

Very nice rims. I found a brand new set on Ebay 4 years ago and built them up for my Steamroller.
How much did they go for, if you don't mind me asking ?
