    you'll hear about Mavic open pros with ultegra hubs as the standard, with 36 spokes.

    I had some for a bit, but had issues with them going out of true wehn i stood to climb.

    Edned up with velocity deep Vs, also with ultegra hubs. In my experience, they are noticeably sturdier. I'm running 28 front and 36 rears, and had them hand-made with brass nipples.

    I like the Velocity Deep V's for a little more lateral and overall stiffness..

    I also like the DT Swiss RR1.1's.. They look like open pros in terms of profile but seem to be a better rim in terms of durability and stiffness.

    It is of great importance that the person building your wheels understands that he should build them for durability and not lightweight..

    Might be too late, but I just posted on this very subject in the "Clyde Bike FAQ" sticky thread in this very forum...

    My Utegra Open Pro's have been bombproof. The hands down best set of wheel I own.
