    why would you switch from one to the other?
    they're essentially the same thing.

    why not get a set of light/strong wheels?
  1.  
    mavic ellipse.

    dodici's are like H+sons but heavier and shittier. Don't buy into mavic proprietary prebuilt wheels, they dont hold up as well as regularly spoked wheels. get some low profile wheels that will last like open pros.
  2.  
    The Dodicis are pretty cheapo in terms of quality. You lookin for a "V" rim? I'd just stick with velocity's to be honest. Deep V if you wanna save a buck, B43 if you really need em that deep.
    Campy Shamal is nice as all get out too.
    If you don't need a V profile rim then you just can't go wrong with Open Pros. Don't cost much, don't weigh much, and last forever.
    In terms of hubs just make sure you get something sealed and quality. Formulas work great as do Surlys and Miches.
  3.  
    Dodici's weight almost 900g PER RIM! Super heavy and super slow. The H+Sons are heavy enough, no need to go even more!

    Personally, I just sold off my Deep-V's, in an effort to build some wheels with lighter rims.

    thanks guys for your advice,love the ellipse,but do they hold up? Heard some things about them,open pro's are nice,looking at some of velocity;s other rims,want something low profile,light,strong,you know,someone told me the cane creek's were nice?Open pro's only come in machined rim,i think,i do not run a brake,so i don't want a machined rim,thanks for your help,just wanted to know what other people are running,and check other rims out,besides the normal stuff,ya know,thanks again pat....

    get silver rims, black spokes, and silver hubs. i promise, it will look hot.

    if i had the money, i'd build a set of dura ace low flange hubs (28h front, 32h rear) with dt competition spokes to silver open pros.

    lights, strong, and look great.

    and yes, the silver is still machined sidewall, but if the whole rim is silver, then you wont really notice unless your looking right at the rim.

    lighter? usually cheaper because they don't say njs on them, but use all the same bearings and hardware.

    I just replaced my Profile/Deep V's with the Cane Creek track.

    http://www.bikesonline.com/index.php?page_URL=Cane-Creek-Track-V-700c-Clincher-Flip-Flop-Silver

    I liked the new hub design, with the nipples at the hub to save rotation weight, and using straight pull spokes to get a stiffer, stronger wheel.

    Maybe I will post something about how they ride in a day or two after taking a some long rides with them.

    I'd love to see those on a bike. You should update your bike photos with all of the upgrades you've done
