    How many of you

    ride Mavic Ellipses on the street?

    I'm coming into some money (working full-time for the next few months), which is great because it's time for a new wheelset. I have always loved and am considering Ellipses. But I'd be riding on the street mostly and I do feel a bit guilty about it.

    If you disagree with riding Ellipses on the street (which a lot of you guys might), recommend me a good ALL black, low profile, decently lightweight, strong rim other than Velocity Aeroheads, and Open Pro CD. I know those are good, but I want to know what else is out there.

    my understanding is that the ellipses are a b*itch to maintain and stronger wheels can be built with regular spokes. IRD for rim rec.
    I'd rather have a bottle in front of me than a frontal lobotomy.
