I've been riding exclusively on Ambrosio rims for the past...9 seasons. Just recently built up a set of wheels, Mavic Open Pro's, DT Comp spokes and NOS Campag Centaur hubs.
I ride a fair amount in the rain and wet conditions having living in London, Shanghai and now Singapore for the past 10 years. A couple of days ago I was on my regular weekday AM ride, wind coming out of the west which is not a good sign here and sure enough coming back, it started to rain. Torrential in fact. I went to use the brakes and whoa, not much action there despite that the fact that the pads had long been bedded into the rims.
Nothing scientific here but the Amrbosio's are way better in extremely wet conditions braking that the Mavic's and they both have machined surfaces. Sames pads were used, salmon Koolstops. Anyone else have any interest experiences with different rims in the wet?
