    Strengths:    weight
    long lasting finish


    Weaknesses:    not many... I only broken one in more than 20000 miles

    Bottom Line:   
    I weight around 160lbs, and didn't expect to have an 32 spoked wheel to last so long with these spokes. I only broke one on these wheels, from the front one, and it breaked in the middle. They hold up my weight and brazilian pot-hole infested roads very well. I know the durability of the spokes is on a direct relation to the quality of the builder. Mime's were built at wheelsmith shop. These spokes weight around 150gms for a 32 set on 14g

    Funny story on this wheel is that it has broken the spoke on Brazil's national, so I had to stop for a wheel change with 12km to go, lost contact with the peloton, regrouped, attacked and went to win the criterium!
