That's the thing. Unless I'm "mis-remembering", didn't pros regularly race on those? I mean, nobody's bike collapsed from hitting a dog back then! It wasn't always about the absolute cutting edge, but also reliability.

The mechanics would keep some 3x spoked wheels with GP4 rims for Paris Roubaix, but looks like carbon took over completely several years ago.
BTW, to clarify my post, it's the HED Belgiums that are bombproof for me, don't have any mavic rims at all any more.
