looking at the lacing pattern I was concerned about flex, especially weighing 200 pounds. I called AC and asked them and the guy I spoke too said he used the 2009 version at 240 pounds and currently rides 2010 version at 195 pounds and has no issues.

Considering who's signing his paycheck, he is bias, although I don't think they'd mess around with that type of question.

Anybody else have experiences with this wheelset? Good bad?

I'd recommend avoiding AM classic's lightweight offerings if you weigh 200 lbs, particularly with their new tri spoke configuration in the back. Wheels with paired or triple spoke configurations carry higher spoke tensions & are more prone to cracked rim eyelets
