    Strengths:    Solidly built, stay true, run smooth. I have the OCRPro wheelset.

    Weaknesses:    I couldn't find any

    Bottom Line:   
    Ok, right up front. I'm 220 pounds 6'1" I've had these wheels on my carbon fibre road bike for 7 years and-to date-21,560 miles I've had to have one spoke replaced, and the front wheel retensioned (once) I ride some pretty rough roads and these wheels have held up and run smooth and true thruout.

    Strengths:    Durable

    Weaknesses:    A little heavy

    Bottom Line:   
    I had these wheels for 8 years and they are still going strong. I only had to have them trued once. But then again the LBS could have been truing them when I brought the bike in for maintenace once a year. I never broke a spoke ever and I am 170lbs.

    Strengths:    Looks good, and that is important if you feel that it is not how good you are, it is how good you look!

    Weaknesses:    questionable components used, will not stand behind their product or network of dealers. Stay away from Ritchey wheels!

    Bottom Line:   
    Purchased bike from Bikes Direct with Ritchey wheels as stock. Wheels were fine for about 750 miles, started getting crunching noises from rear hub and found rear bearing is out. After contacting Ritchey, and being told that I have to go to one of their approved dealers for service, visited four different LBS recommmended by Ritchey to no avail, no one wants to work on these pos rims! and now I know why, there are no parts available per Ritchey! Really dissapointed in their customer service and also Bike Direct service is below average.

    Strengths:    Light, fast, smooth, held their shape.

    Weaknesses:    Front wheel flimsy, Ritchey's off center rim makes a strong durable back wheel, until the uneven tension causes the rim to crack.

    Bottom Line:   
    After almost 2 years of riding I noticed my back wheel had several bad cracks around the holes. Up too yesterday I though these were the best rims I'd ever rode, now I'm not so sure. I have to say that after 5000 miles the rear wheel only needed truing once. The front on the other had needed constant attention, probably because it is 24 spoke radial.

    The rear hub seemed to slip every now and again, and the engagement of the freehub sucked.

    The wheels were definitly light and fast, and I am 280 lbs. so really I don't need to be on a 28 spoke backwheel.

    I can't recommend them, but I can't fault them too much
