Ritchey trekking 700 comp OCR rims?

I was in my LBS asking about a wheel build today, an my wrench suggested using Ritchey trekking 700 comp OCR rims instead of Mavic 719s. The Richeys are about 1/2 the cost of the Mavics, and I really trust my shops recommendations.

Anyone have experience with these? I can't find much info online, and Harris used to sell them but doesn't seem to have them available online--it's possible Ritchey's not making them anymore. Any feedback would be appreciated. Thanks.

This is a helluva bump, but I'm finally building a rear wheel with this OCR rim that I picked up back when this question was originally asked. Don't even remember where I bought it.
The Harris links are still on the website, and still say "this item is no longer available."
Multiple listings (including spokecalc from 2004) show 594 ERD, and about 2.5mm offset.
36h OCR rim with butted spokes should make a strong-enough-for-light-touring wheel even in 130mm spacing. I'll report back after building, just for the fun of it. I doubt anyone will be gleaning advice from this thread.

I do not know about that particular Ritchey OCR rim but I had a pair that had really bad "pulsing" issues when applying the brakes. Ultimately I ended up hating them enough that instead of selling them to some unfortunate person, I threw them away.

One thing, I see, is they are not wide enough to shift the center line over very far..
