    Strengths:    Match my bike (sort of), light weight

    Weaknesses:    light weight sacrifices strength, out of true constantly, have broken too many spokes

    Bottom Line:   
    According to a previous post, if you're only 110 lbs., these wheels are great. Unfortunately, I am 205 lbs., and I don't ride light. I hardly use these wheels anymore bacuse they get out of true so easily. I even had them relaced in 3-cross pattern, which helped a bit (the stock lacing was radial front/radial non-drive/two-cross drive), but I still had to true them after every ride, and sometimes in the middle of rides. Heavy/powerful riders stay away! I never understood why anyone would spec a 28 hole conventional rim on a 60 cm frame...

    Strengths:    Super light. On paper math suggests around 1600 grams.

    Look great


    Weaknesses:    Not for anyone but ultra light riders.

    Bottom Line:   
    Very nice wheels. Hugi (opps, I mean CODA ;) ) hubs work well, love the noise during free wheeling. I wouldn't pay the Hugi price for the hubs, but the CODA price was great. Rims are great too, tired and true Mavic Open Pros. Not the lightest, but they keep going. The wheels have stayed true except for maybe a millimeter. I ride some rough roads, even a few dirt roads. But I'm also really light, 118 pounds.

    Strengths:    Overall great training wheel, matches my orange bike.

    Weaknesses:    None so far.

    Bottom Line:   
    Bought them for training wheels and they have been great! Have about 2000 miles on them and they are as true as the day I put them on. Have heard about the problems mentiioned below from my LBS, but can say I haven't had anything to complain about. The hubs are Hugi's, rims are Mavic standard Open Pro's, so the only thing that could go wrong is the build, but I guess I got lucky.

    Strengths:    still thinkin'...

    Weaknesses:    everything. same thing happened to my dad's rear coda.

    Bottom Line:   
    These came on my R700--coda hubs (which, by the way, are the same for mountain and road) and Mavic CPX33. They suck. After 60 mi on flat, newly paved roads, the rear came radially out of true. Thried to true 'em. Spoke tension was way uneven. Took it to LBS. Said it was toast. I only weigh 140. I don't think I'm that strong! They're also heavy, don't engage quickly, and noisy. These don't even deserve 1 falmin' rhino turd. STAY AWAY FROM THESE.
