I'm using a 36 hole Open Pro on my commuter. The wheel is strong and light, but not ideal for touring.

Problem number one is width, I would not run a tire larger than a 700x28 with a 19mm wide rim. (I know people do this, but Mavic does not recommend larger than 28, and I would not either).

Second: a stronger rim like the Dyad is a better value, price wise.

How heavy are you and how much weight do you load on your bike?
