    Strengths:    relatively light

    Weaknesses:    Both front and rear wheel are less than stiff. Riding out of saddle lets the front wheel swing. I am not a heavy weight (165).
    Rear hub shows signifikant play after less than one year and isn't adjustable.

    Bottom Line:   
    Rim of Rear Wheel cracked around every spoke atteched to the casette side of the hub after about 1000 miles. Torelli didn'r wanted to replace it for free just offered a discount on anew one.

    Strengths:    1550 grams at $300
    hold up well with daily riding

    Weaknesses: skewers?

    Bottom Line:   
    When I built my bike I was trying to save some $ for a carbon wheelset. I needed to get something on the bike to ride. I was looking at some alloy wheels that I could get a deal on. For $300 w/shipping and at 1550 grams these wheels are unbeatable! Have put about a 1000 miles on them with no problems.

    Strengths:    Light weight for the price - stiff for climbing. Simple cassette-carrier changing.

    Weaknesses:    Stiffer ride on harsh roads - good thing I ride steel!

    Bottom Line:   
    Beautiful wheel set. Weighs 1550 grams on my digital scale (vs. advertised 1510). Came with rim tape and cassette lock-ring, but no skewers. Ride is very stiff compared to my old Spox set, but much lighter - you can feel the improvement in climbs.

    I got the Campagnolo cassette-carrier. Be careful mounting a 9-speed Campy cassette - you'll need a thin shim to keep the lockring from going too deep and rubbing on the seal. I left it out at first and it bound up a bit. Perfect with the shim. Probably not a concern with 10 or 11 speed.

    So far so good - love 'em!

    Strengths:    These are really quite good. Having ridden Eastons, hand built Mavics, sew-ups and clinchers,and others, in comparison, these wheels have been holding up quite well and meet all the criteria that most cyclist want: Light weight, durability, low cost and high performance.

    Weaknesses:    Lack brand recognition, if that is an issue.

    Bottom Line:   
    Skeptical at first because of price, not brand. It is obvious that Torelli out-sources their products, but since most cycling products are, I decided to take a chance.
