    Cheapest place to get an Open Pro wheelset?

    Hey,
    I'm looking to get some Mavic Open Pro's laced to something a bit better than formulas. I was thinking Phil hubs, Dura-ace, or Suzue Pro Max's..

    I'm in the SF Bay Area, but can order online as well too.

    So far, I've found.. Phils/Open Pros for around $430 from thebikebiz.com. And.. American Cyclery in SF has Open Pro/Suzue Pro Max's for $462.

    I'm leaning towards the set from thebikebiz.com but was wondering if anyone had any cheaper sources?

    i got a set of dura-ace 32s laced to open pro's at my LBS for 375 total. i'd call around to a few places just to see if its worth it to save on shipping costs?

    Bicyclewheels.com used to have Open Pros laced to high flange fixed/fixed dura ace for $350 but they aren't currently on the site. Email them and see if they are back in stock.

    I'm guessing you want nice hubs? Otherwise, I think bicyclewheels has OPs to Formulas for $275

    Universal Cycles. Using their wheel builder will give you DA/Open pro with DT Swiss Competition spokes for $351.88. Phils for about $100 more.

    It was four years ago, but I had blue Open Pros laced to high flange DA hubs for $225, lockring included.

    Seems like everything's super expensive there.
