Strengths:    Lite......really Lite

Weaknesses:    The price always hurts

Bottom Line:   
WOW!! I just purchased the 2006 Bontrager Triple X Carbon TEAM Model. These wheels are worth every penny. The stifness yet comfort are nicely balanced. They climb like a beast! On flats you will get a little less momentum but thats were your power comes in to play!

Strengths:    light, light, light, did I mention they were anti-heavy?

Weaknesses:    price

Bottom Line:   
I have previously used Cmapy Neucleon clinchers for 3 years and love them. Never had to true them once. I thought I would try tubies again and wanted a carbon pair. Boy am I glad I did. These wheels spool up real fast and gold speed fairly well too. The braking with Bontrager pads is just as good as my metal rimmed campy's. That may be due to my Mavic SSC brakes or the Bontrager pads. I am very pleased overall. I dont think the difference from my Neucleons is worth $1000 though, a got a closeout on the '04 model.
