Subject: [CR]Araya Tita Ace Titanium Rims

I bought a wheelset today comprised of Pelissier 2000 gold anodized low-flange hubs laced to 32 hole Araya Tita Ace "78 World Champion" titanium tubular rims. They seem groovy and light enough but do I dare ride them? I checked the archives and although mentioned, the discussion quickly derailed to, "the existence of Galli ti toe clips", and "bamboo as a building material". Without going there again, can anybody vouch for these staying together under a 160 lb. rider who's all about the souplesse. Also any comments on the hubs would be appreciated as well, as I've never seen a pair before.

Cheers, Jon Williams
