Hello!

I was hoping that someone would be able to tell me what they think about the Shimano WH-7700 carbon wheelset from 2003 mainly from a standpoint of durability (i live in quebec where the average road has potholes every 10 feet). I may be able to purchase a used pair from a freind but wanted to do my research first. here is a pic of that wheelset:



here is the link if the pic doesnt show up:

Thnaks a lot!

The few reviews I've read is that they are not very stiff. In comparisons, they do not fair very well.

If you can give them a test ride, go ahead. You might not care about what the tests say. I assume you can get a good price on them.
