MA-2s it is I think. Vintage clincher rims are hard to find, tub rims are comparatively common, cheap and everywhere, and MA-2s are the best period clinchers by a mile IMO plus they have no ugly dyed anodizing and a nice classic box section, plus they're pretty light too. If only Mavic (or anyone really) made as good an all-rounder rim today. I use them on my MTB and they are fully up to it.
