Great Price


Weaknesses:    Heavy

Bottom Line:   
I bought these to replace the stock Alex S500 wheels on my Allez. These wheels seem to be a much stronger wheel and I am not paying a weight penalty compared to the original stock wheels. The wheels also look much more expensive than they cost. I haven't ridden them yet, so a follow up review will be posted once I put a few hundred miles on them. First impression is that they are well made. The wheels feel very smooth and roll for a long time. Out of the box they were straight as an arrow. I bought them from Nashbar with a 20% coupon so I got them for $167 after shipping and tax. Not a bad deal at all!
There is a saying that goes:
"Strong, light, cheap; Pick two."
I think that theory applies here.
