    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.

    Strengths:    Sturdy, bombproof actually. Railroads, potholes no problem. They are still true, but the rear wheel has gone slightly out of round.

    Weaknesses:    Unforgiving on rough chip seal pavement compared to a carbon rim. Due to their weight, they are not very responsive, certainly not for use on any serious hills, and they really aren't aerodynamic.

    Bottom Line:   
    These rims came stock on my bike. I use them for training and off season rolling. They have about 6000km on them and have no cracks. They are an OK rim -not very resopnsive, but good for training or communting I suppose. Bombproof in my experience. I wouldn't and don't race with them.

    Strengths:    Look cool

    Weaknesses:    Paired spokes require too high tension and leave too much unsupported rim between the spoke pairs.

    Bottom Line:   
    These Wheels came on my Trek 1500. After 1 year and about 3000 miles the rear rim has developed cracks around several spoke holes. If you are a large and/or powerful rider these wheels are a bad idea.
