Hi Folks-
I've seen a bunch of large group buys for cheap carbon wheelsets, whether they are from Gigantex or from other factories. Has anyone on the board had experience with these? It seems like lots of people buy them, but not many people put a ton of miles on them. I know the certain folks will chime in and say that you can pick two of aero/light, cheap, and durable, but I'd like to hear from people whole actually ride these wheels. Thanks,

Sweet. 50mm? How is the braking?
Yep 50mm. In dry weather, the braking with SS yellows is better than my aluminum wheels, but they're not so fun to ride in the rain. It takes a revolution or 2 to clean the brake tracts and then still not very strong braking. Racing in the rain with them is somewhat scary :eek:
