Mavic CX 18 rim questions

I found a set while checking out a shop today and was debating picking them up to build up for another pair of track wheels. I was wondering what experiences anyone had with them, how they compared to the gp4s, etc.

ebay hasn't seen any in a while, so i'm also curious as to what a pair price would be for these, ie, at what points would you just pull the trigger and pick 'em up anyways?

Well I guess youre in luck as I've just bought a pair laced to mavic track hubs off electronic-bay. Usually it seems the older Mavic rims tended to be geared more towards consistency and durability and theyre new stuff is pretty yucky. I'll tell you how they run. (ohhhh soooo obvious I just realized CX=cyclocross 18=rim depth?)

Here is one rim

The rim is very thin so you can`t use a 23mm tire.
