Strengths:    Cheap, reliable and durable

Weaknesses:    A little heavy if you are a competitive cyclist. But otherwise, pretty good for the money.

Bottom Line:   
I got these wheels on eBay, and they are beautiful. The hubs are really good and smooth, and definitely noticed a big improvement in my up hill climbs. I don't know what the other reviewer is seeing when he says they are crap. Remember from your physics class that bearings spin very differently when they are under a load as opposed to free. These are not the best, but the performance for dollar ratio is the best you can get for 109 dollars. If you want something better, go with the superlites, but it will be more expensive. If you are just commuting, then these are your wheels.

Strengths:    cheap

Weaknesses:    hubs

Bottom Line:   
I got these wheels solely to ride on my trainer on my tri bike in the winter, and maybe on some early spring rides. I couldn't even justify keeping them for this purpose at the $109 price - the hubs were total crap. They barely even spun out of the box, and even after adjusting the cones, they could hardly keep their momentum. Put your money toward something else.

Strengths:    Strength, spin, descents, and they look great.

Weaknesses:    Weight, unless you think you can get a wheel-set under 1500 g's for $109 delivered.

Bottom Line:   
I purchased these wheels from Bike Island for my second road bike that I use mainly for commuting. The wheels are super for $109. Very strong and true, even after hitting pot holes and the like. The wheels are around 2100 g's, but for the price and durability I'm can't complain.
