MAVIC OPEN 4 CD RIM or similar?

I have an amazing front wheel built on one of these older rims.
Im looking for a rim that I can have built up into a wheel to match.

Does anyone know of a source for one of these rims or a rim that might match really well?

Thanks

They are still sold on eBay and elsewhere. They are great rims.

Your LBS can order them NOS from Euro Asia Imports I'd think. They won't be cheap, though.

How different is the Open 4 CD to an Open Pro or Reflex?

Hard anodized, and IIRC the brake surfaces are not ground on Open4CD.

AFAIK OpenPro is the successor of Open4CD.

This is pretty much what Ive found out too.
Of course there is also the grey anodizing of the Open 4CD. Some Open Pros had this too though.
At the moment that's what I'm looking for along with a decent Open 4CD.

One of my Centurion's has Open4CD rims and the rear rim has American Classic hub with aero spokes no less. Very light wheel

One of my favorite rims by far.
If anyone needs a pair in 650c I have a NOS pair in 28h.

The H Plus Son TB14 rim is supposed to be modeled after the Open Pro and it comes in the new 23mm style. I haven't ridden on them but they are supposed to be pretty good.
