Default What rims?

When I ordered my Yo I bought it with set of Mavic M-231 rims. At the time a very popular rim.
Well I cant find another set of NOS M-231 so if guys had to put a new set of hoops on your bike what would you choose for this restoration? They will be laced to a set of NOS NukeProof Ti hubs.

Ritchey Vantage is one thought.

DaveH,

i have recently seen Mavic 231's on ebay. i have that rim on my wife's Voodoo. poke around on ebay just under rims - and search via the number of holes on the hub - 28, 32, 36. Mavic 220 is a nice choice as well.

as a sidebar - i have some early Nuke Proof Carbon hubs and they are laced to gold anno Mavic 217's

Sette

Not sure how you feel about "cutdown" rims but that would be a good choice to preserve that retro look. I use them on a couple of my bikes and love 'em. You can do a search in eBay for some Mavic MA40's or MA2's, Sun Mistrals, or even Deetz if you can fine 'em.
