    Tubular. Pretty boxy, not quite as aero as an Open Pro. Ferruled spoke holes. Probably nice, although I haven't ridden them. Probably lightweight, although the set I felt was tied to some crappy boat anchor Suzue Jr's.

    EDIT! Is this for the track or the road?

    And a quick googling came up with this off of campyonly (awesome site.)

This is the perfect choice for the climber, sprinter or crit rider. If you are riding tubulars, then weight and ride quality are a big issue. This rim has no aero profile. What it does have is excelent crosswind stability (good for group rides so you don't sail across the road in a gust of wind), lateral rigidity (stiff for the sprints), and low mass for good acceleration. Like all Campy eyelet rims this one has stainless steel eyelets. Yeah, big deal! If you are a gram head and want to use alloy nipples the eyelets are they way to go. An eyelet rim will allow the nipples to spin easily without cutting into the nipple. The rims witout eyelets tend to cut into the nipple and break the nipples, plus they are harder to get up to proper tension without rounding the nipples. The side walls are SWT and the color is dark anodized aluminum.

    Should be a pretty damn nice setup, assuming you're willing to keep up with the maintenance on that rear hub. But it sounds like you know what's going on, seeing as you had enough brains to build a wheel 10 years ago.

    The wheel is being sold for $45 with a 17 t cog and lockring. I figure for that much, its worth a try.
    Plus like i said, i already have a front that sorta matches it.
