    Strength:

    Stay true and very strong. Great wheel for training rides. i only needed to have them trued once and the shop said they really were not that bad.

    Weakness:

    Heavy

    These wheels came on a Gunnar Roadie I purchased in 2002 or 2003. They now reside on a Felt F1 and are my primary wheels used for everyday rides. I have probably put 10-15,000 miles on these wheels with no problems whatsoever.

    Strength:

    comfort

    Weakness:

    rear hub
    inability to stay true
    lack of stifness,power transfer

    DO NOT BUY! that is what i would say. the front wheel is ok runs smooth.
    rear hub flanges are to close so the wheel goes out of true easly.
    these wheels are not stiff in any way.and they make your chain feel like its an elastic band
    but they are comfortable.
    mavic aksiums are even stifer and faster and they cost 1/2 the price

    Strength:

    Lightweight and fast. Have stayed true for the 300 miles of road riding (not all of which is nice and rut free)

    Weakness:

    seem to flex far too much,especially under speed/downhill conditions. The 'wobble' sets in and it's scary.
    I questioned these wheels for guys over 200lbs before buying the bike.

    I'm going out on a limb here because I have the DC Pro V wheelset and am unsure if the product listed and my wheels are the same.
    I'm not a fan of the bladed spokes.They tend to catch a crosswind (especially downhill)
    There seems to be far too much rim flex (one can flex the rim from brake pad to brake pad with modest thumb pressure) LBS says "nothing they can do"

    Similar Products Used:

    None so far (next bike in line is a 1991 Paramount with 36spoke 3x bullet proof wheels.
    Looking at EastonEA90SLs or a custom build from Chris King.
