I have a set of Mavic Module E's with Shimano hubs that are my dedicated switch and ride rims. By this I mean, the minute I get another project bike with flats, or bent rims, or what have you, I move the Mavics from whatever they are on to the new project bike and start riding. They have been on most of the bikes I own at one time or another and they are what I use for my daily rider. I like them alot. And I weigh an unsvelt 225. Alright, I'm trying to get back to 190. Anyway, they seem touch as nails to me, but I'm not a long rider.
