Speaking of wheels-OPen pro cyclox ?

I have a set of open pro 32 hole chorus hubs, 14/15 spoked, wheels. Are these strong enough to handle cyclox riding? They are in good shape but wasn't sure if they wouldn't just end up getting trashed in no time. Any thoughts?

i've raced two seasons on a pair of open pros laced to 32-spoke campy centaur hubs. not a problem.

i'll probably rebuild with new op rims this season only because grit and mud have made the braking surface decidedly concave...
