Shimano 600 HB-6400 and Mavic open 20's

Hello, I'm looking into purchasing new wheels and I found a great deal on a set with these hubs. The set comes with Mavic Open 20 rims and the Shimano 600 hubs. This is my first wheel buy, and I plan on having the hubs serviced, but I would like to know your experiences with these hubs and rims. How easy are these hubs to service? How do these rims hold up? Any information available is helpful.

I had a set of these hubs on some Mavic Reflex rims that I had built in 2006. The rim brake surface finally wore out, but the hubs are still in excellent condition. I serviced them every year at a minimum. Excellent hubs.
