Campagnolo Omega Strada Hardox ERD?

  1. I have a pair of NOS rims from the late 80s or early 90s, clincher 36-hole rims made by Campagnolo
    called "Omega", with "Strada Hardox" in smaller letters. They are a box-profile rim with dark grey
    anodizing. I want to build them up with some older Campy hubs, but I am having trouble figuring out
    if they're in spocalc.xls (http://www.damonrinard.com/spocalc.htm).

    These are the listed Campagnolo rims in spocalc:

    Know how it compares to any of the listed rims?

    I will measure it, just curious about the rims. Can you tell me anything else about them, like
    reliability, et cetera?

    I rode Omega Strada Hardox rims for years - but I had a semi-aero tubulars. They were bullet proof.
    I wrecked 3 times, quite badly, and the wheels never went out of true. They're still in use; I sold
    the rims with the bike to a guy who still rides them occasionally.

    I also built up a set of wheels on a set of I believe Omega Hardox box section rims - these were a
    disappointment. They went out of round almost immediately - well, I did hit a bad RR crossing at
    full speed, but still.... So, for pure nostalgia and light weight, they're great rims. With 36
    spokes, you might get greater durability than I did with 32 spokes.

    I think these are the rims you have: Campagnolo Delta XL, Omega XL, Lambda, Omicron box which means
    the ERD is 614mm. Only a guess, though- your best option is to measure the rims directly.

    FWIW, they measured 613mm. I let Damon Rinard know.
