We might as well keep it going for another 10 years.

I bet a lot of those CXP30's will still be rolling. If only I can find those anchor things to build my last two.

Ditto all the kudos above. I got a set of CXP-30 rims laced to Mavic hubs (threaded for freewheel) from another BF member. Put 'em on my Ironman. Terrific wheels. We don't have any mountains and the weight isn't noticeable on our mostly flattish terrain with occasional short, steep rollers.

They look sharp too, which surprised me. I was accustomed to classic low profile rims. Sorta the bicycle equivalent to extra wide whitewalls on a classic car.

I might have needed to tighten three spokes once to true it after the rear developed a very slight wobble. Higher profile aluminum rims seem to need much less attention than lightweight low profile rims. My Araya CTL-370 and Wolber Super Champion Alpine rims needed frequent truing.
