Need help identifying a 700c rim

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Need help identifying a 700c rim

Hello all!

Its been a while since I visited this site but I'm glad I remembered it now. I was sold a wheelset through Kijiji that supposedly had Mavic Open Pro rims. I checked today to see what serial number they had to try and sell them and I'm now sure they're not Open Pros. If anyone can suggest a place to search for them I would greatly appreciate it. There's a UPC code on the wheels and the numbers M12318 12681371 . Thanks in advance!

Chrisp

Its a Syncros hub with butted spokes. I've checked the Mavic, DT Swiss, Syncros and Ritchey sites with no luck. I tried to find out info about manufacturers for Ritchey and Scott but wasn't able to find anything. Now to see if I can send this...

Could it be a Sun ME14a or Ambrosio Excellight? I recall those looking very much like the Open Pro.

Could you post useful photos not just in the rim but the outside?

You didn't specify. Your fault.
