Strengths:    These are very light aluminum wheels with a softer ride. The PBO fiber spokes reduces road vibrations and greatly increases ride quality. The company also offers some customization on the color of the spokes if needed. Competitive customer service and hassle free warranty claims by Spinergy master wheel builder Joe D.

Weaknesses:    Spinergy wheels are only sold in pairs. Consumer do not have the option to buy just one wheel in stores. Single wheel purchase can only be done directly from Spinergy or an authorized distributor.

Bottom Line:   
Highly recommended for those looking for a lighter aluminum wheels with a softer ride quality. This is my 3rd wheelset from Spinergy. Overall, a better light weight aluminum wheel upgrade and investment that offers a very soft ride. You'll have to ride one to appreciate.

Strengths:    Bought these wheels during very first year they were available. 2000? Have not had to true them.
I ride about 4000 mi. per year. Packed dirt and asphalt. Over the years my weight has fluctuated
from 195 to 215. The damping qualities of pbo are ideal for cycling. Smooth and quick to spin up.
Sweetest ride ever. Rides like a dream.

Weaknesses:    did replace wheel bearings once. If the rear spokes make creaking noise, I pinch the drive side spokes slightly, and rub ski wax on the spot where the spokes rub each other. This seems to last about half the season.

Bottom Line:   
Lightweight. The feel must be experienced to be appreciated. Virtually no maintenance.
I can't compare the ride to anything else I've ridden. When these need to be replaced, I wouldn't
consider anything else but Spinergy

Strengths:    Spinergy customer service. Spokes never break. Stays true. Comfortable smooth ride. colored spokes look sharp.

Weaknesses:    Can be hard to get local shops to work on. Must remove rim strip to adjust spokes. The wheels are so trouble free you tend to ignore normal maintenance.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels stayed true for over 5 years without any adjusting when a rear rim cracked at an eyelet. It turned out that the I'd let the spoke tension get too low so the stress wasn't spread over the rim. Joe at Spinergy stood by their wheels completly. I could not be happier be with their service, he built me a new wheel and and only charged for the rim.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels have been the best wheel set ever. 7 years of good use, Serviced the hubs every 24 months there are still performing as new.
Now after 7 years I have broken a spoke. I emailed Joe at Spinergy wheels and the response to getting another spoke out to me was fantastic. You cant go past these wheels or the SERVICE.
