The rims in question are NOS, old label Mavic GP-4 tubular rims that Gabriel bought at this year's charity auction. These beautiful rims deserve a pair of NOS or once-built Campy Record or Maillard 700 Professional hubs. Not only will that donation help out Operation Smile and the MS Society, but it will get a good show for any of you who are interested in wheelbuilding.

And since Jan has already donated the tires, I'll put up another set of spokes and labor for a set of clincher parts. Who's got some MA-2s or Super Champion 58s? And how many of us have a pair of servicable hubs just waiting for a special occasion?

Let's give Pergolizzi some pretty stuff to auction off.
