Strength:

Blue Ti spokes are cool looking along w/decals. Light front wheel. good aerodynamics

Weakness:

Rear Ti rims feels flexy on fast decents.

I purchased the initial set after seeing them on display at the litespeed booth at the bike show. I was one of the first purchasers. Well the front Ti spokes kept popping and when they break the rim goes COMPLETELY out of TRUE. I angrily sent the set back and they sent me a 1999 set w/the new lighter hubs and only charged me shipping!! No problems since. cudos to CANE CREEK. GO W/THE TI spokes.

Strength:

The 30mm-deep rims provide some aero-benefit and do not become a negative with the presence of cross-winds.

Vendor is outstanding: Had a problem with the free-hub and CaneCreek replaced without question.

The 16-DB-spoke-setup on the front is great.

The 28-back is stiff for a rider weighing 165lbs.

Bearing-action is smooth.

Straight-pull-spoke with nipples-on-the-hub-side is a great technical-feature for reducing centrifical-inertia.

Weakness:

Free-hub engagement appears to be slow. Likely due to choice of rear-hub-internals. Can update the free-hub to Dura Ace for some inprovement.

Would like to see the vendor consider other hub internals such as Hope and EDCO bearings.

Good price-point for performance. If all you do is ride then spend the money for either a pair of FIR/ANTARAS or ZIPP/404's. I'm a local-club-racer and ride less than 15 hours/week.

Similar Products Used: Campagnola's Sydney-2000-rims mated with Ultegra hubset (32-spoke) - too heavy in comparison.
