Strengths:    Roll well. Well made. Low maintenance

Weaknesses:    Might be heavy, if that is a concern.

Bottom Line:   
Came with a wheel upgrade when I purchased my Giant TCR Composite. I ride/train/race in all weather and I have never had to touch the hubs. When I purchased them I weighed 123kg, and now weigh 105kg. They roll very nicely, and seem to roll far better than my friends who have Ksyrium SLs (and we did swap bikes to see if it was a mass issue). For an entry level hub, they are great. My next hubs will be DT 240s.

Strengths:    Low (ie, no) maintenance

Weaknesses:    Wish they came in silver

Bottom Line:   
Got them as part of a wheelset built up by Joe Young (www.youngwheels.com). They stay truer longer than the wheels I had built using Shimano hubs--something about flange angle, etc. I'm 240 lbs. and I've had problems with other wheels staying true -- not these.
