Strengths:    Stiff, nimble

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I rode these wheels for a couple of years until being hit by a car, crushing the back wheel. Never had to have them trued. I love them so much, I didn't even look at another set/brand. I do lots of riding in the foothills of North Carolina, averaging 17 mph. and simply love how easy they are to push uphill. They make for fast and stiff downhills too, keeping the bike steady. Still, comfortable on some rougher surfaces too. Despite how nimble the bike feels, the ride is quite smooth.

Strengths:    Bombproof, look great, ride great, affordable

Weaknesses:    Heavier than a lot of other choices, rear hub requires regular maintenance

Bottom Line:   
These are by far the best wheels I have ever owned. I am 6'6", 230 lbs and literally break Mavics, but the Spinergy Stealth PBOs have held up and stayed true for thousands of miles. I have 2 sets, one on my main bike with at least 15,000 miles and one on my backup bike with 6,000 miles and the only thing I ever need to do is service the rear hub to prevent creaking, but it is well worth the effort and an easy task. The PBO spokes also provide some dampening of the road vibration which has kept me comfortable on a stiff frame.

Yes the wheels are heavier than a lot of others, but so am I. Dollar for dollar, ounce for ounce I think these are extremely affordable and a great choice for an everyday wheelset.

Now I am just waiting for a disc version for my cross bike to come out....

Strengths:    Spins up to speed very quickly, gives my Roubaix an even smoother ride, Price, they handle the wind very well

Weaknesses:    Somewhat heavy, Does not come with ceramic bearings, can't upgrade to better hubs

Bottom Line:   
The wheel absorbs a great deal of road buzz, my hands feels less fatigued after long rides. They spin up and hold speed well I can't compare them to any other carbon wheel, my other sets of wheels are alloy and are a lot lighter. But they don't give a better road feel as the Spinergy wheel set.

Strengths:    Spin Great!
Most for your Money!

Weaknesses:    You pick up some grams, but they will last... Not a weight weenie wheel. A real Aero workhorse!

Bottom Line:   
I had the privilege to demo these for a bit. These wheels spin up real nice. A great wheel for the cost! Bullet proof!

Strengths:    Excellent quality-cost relationship

Weaknesses:    If you aren't from USA, you will have problems about spare-parts.

Bottom Line:   
In spite of the fact that I bought these wheels 5 years ago, I've just had a serius problem with my rear wheel and I need to replace several parts, specifically the hub where the spokes are attached, the axle and the free hub where the crankset is set.
My main problem is that I'm from Spain and I can't get these spare-parts in Spain. So, I'd like that someone helps me to find a shop in USA where I could buy them getting a best price. I'll need to make contact with the shop by email.

If you want to help me, please send me an email to antoniodelmirador@gmail.com
