Ritchey Vantage Comp Road - or - Mavic Open Pro ?

Long story short, I'm trying to decide what wheels to keep on an RB-1... I know they came with the Ritcheys stock. Between these two rims (either will be run with Shimano 600 hubs), is one better than the other, or are they fairly similar? Obviously I know zero about this...

Thanks for any info!

I would lean toward the Ritcheys because they were original to the bike, are less common today, and look nice. But either will be cool.

I like the Vantage Comp ( & Pro ) line of Ritchey wheels, so the Ritchey wheels would stay if mine ( if only because they were OEM for the bike ).

I prefer the eyeletted design of the Mavics but the Ritchey's graphics are more period correct. I believe the Ritcheys were rebadged Araya or Ukais.

Thanks for the opinions! Normally I would be all about the OEM stuff, but I think that the Mavics may look pretty cool with some tan sidewall Clements.... I'll find out this afternoon! The Mavics are black where the Ritcheys are grey, which just looks like faded black...
