    Strengths:    Durability

    Weaknesses:    Flexy

    Bottom Line:   
    Ive been using a rear bontrager select track wheel as my main beater for 3 years now. I work as a bike messenger on brakeless track bike in the midwest. Three winters and counting with this wheel. Ive only replaced the bearings once. Its truly amazing how long this wheel has stood the test of time, especially considering the lesser spoke count.

    Strengths:    They look pretty good

    Weaknesses:    Creaky, paired spokes were an unfortunate trend

    Bottom Line:   
    Came on on my Trek 1500.
    These wheels have been fine for years. They creak while climbing. Recently I locked up the brakes while stopping suddenly and the rear rim deformed beyond repair.... I'm attributing this to their age and the paired spokes.

    Strengths:    Look Good,
    Handled anything I threw at them including a couple of at speed incidents in the Peleton

    Weaknesses:    None that I know off.

    Bottom Line:   
    I road a pair of these from new for 42000 km until I sold the bike. This was over a 4 year period and I only broke one spoke which was caused by snapping a branch off in the rear wheel flicked up from road. I am around 82 kg. Great Product and they look good.
