I'm running a pair of Mavic Open Pros 32 spokes on Ultegra hubs on my rain bike. In cleaning off my tool bench (actually under it) I found a receipt showing that these things are now over 9 years old. With some calculations of when they were on which bike, I believe they've got over 20,000 miles on them. I went over them carefully and there are not cracks anywhere on them. Come to think of it I've only had to true them twice, both times within the first year. Is this typical for this rim hub combination? How much longer could I expect them to last????
Oh, crud. I just realized I probably jinxed myself.
