Strengths:    straight as an arrow
smooth zero maintenance bearings
Look like they cost 3 x what they do


Weaknesses:    ummm....no

Bottom Line:   
5000+ miles of abuse on the Chicago streets, pot holes, heaving breaking...from a heavy (210#) rider and...bearings still smooth (with zero play...and zero maintenance) and rims...well, lets just say I lost my spoke wrench and forgot how to true a wheel...5000 miles ago.
Still super cool looking, and reasonably light, a bargain (you'd have to spend twice to get something better).
If you can find a set, grab them...these are some awesome wheels!

Strengths:    Strength - both in terms of flex while riding and durability - these wheels just seem to stay true.
Bang for buck there is not a better wheelset out there


Weaknesses:    None so far...

Bottom Line:   
Just a great wheelset! Smooth, surprisingly tough and VERY quiet. I've got the Velomax set that had black Easton stickers - which I took off... These wheels were an altrernative set to some Cane Creek Aeroheads - both bread and butter wheelset - but the Easton set is noticeably stiffer. they also seem to stay true through surprisingly rough roads.

Strengths:    Light, stiff and smooth rolling for the price. Quite freewheeling.

Weaknesses:    Spokes have broken in the first year, and not covered by warranty.

Bottom Line:   
I got these with my Cervelo R3 about a year and half ago. I have really enjoyed riding them, that is, when the spokes haven't been broken.

They are pretty light for the price, and feel pretty stiff during hard efforts and out of the saddle. And the hubs do feel like they roll really well. They feel really smooth and I love that they freewheel quietly.

However, a spoke has broken on each wheel within the first year, and not while riding. Once immediately after a ride, and once just at home several weeks after the latest ride (I was injured). And though they have otherwise always stayed true, even after some bad roads and hard bumps, the thought of getting stranded with a broken spoke is now in the back of my mind when I ride on these wheels.

In theory they are a great training wheel. It's a shame the spokes break so easily. And neither the Cervelo shop from which they were bought, nor the local Easton distributor, would accept that the issue is covered by the warranty.

Strengths:    Rolls like nothing you've seen before.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels rolls like nothing else I've ridden. I'm sure they'll just keep on rolling even after you've stepped off your bike.

Great training wheels. For that kind of money they're a no-brainer.

Easton Circuit Freewheel Problem

Bought a 2011 BMC SR02 from a guy on craigslist yesterday. Took it out for a ride yesterday and had some wheel problems that I did not notice on the test ride. Basically when coasting and not pedaling the chain becomes slack and sits on the frame leg causing the chain to bounce all over the place. ... Read More »

Crit circuit in northern Indiana

Hey fellow midwestern'ers. Hopefully you all are keeping steady with your indoor training and aren't nearly as antsy as me to get outside! I was just wondering, after watching all of MonkeyClaw's crit videos all over Arizona, if there was anything similar around me (Northwest Indiana). I've looked ... Read More »

Circuit Franco-Belge / Tour de Wallonie-Picarde 2011 (spoiler)

McEwen wins his second stage plus the overall! Not the most prestigious win in palmares, but a good one nonetheless. There were plenty of fast men in this peloton. The old guy still has some punch. JSRRead More »
