Mechanic (great guy @ harry halls in manchester) informed me that the alexrims are discontinued so he suggested building some wheels up from mavic rims. Obviously will need to replace both. Spoke with the other party and all should be sorted. Mavic rims a good option for strength and weight?
I know Harry Hall shop very well...
Assuming he is right about Alex rims... There are alternatives which do not involve replacing the spokes. One just has to check the ERD of the rim... There are rims available for all ERD.
Yours are 23 mm rims! So maybe a Kinlin 240 available at Sdeals.com might just do the trick.
There are other Alex rims at 23 mm too
EDIT: just realised the other party is paying... so yes, go for a full new build on Mavic Open PRO... go for the CD version which doesn't have the silver sidewall, but it is full matt grey, look the set I built above, they look great!
