|Are Campy Nucleon wheels strong enough for everyday use.|

|I've been using a pair for about 500 miles now - and they work great for me. I ride on good roads and I'm relatively lightweight, so when I got them I wasn't too concerned about wear.|

|Used them daily for two years. I weigh 175 lbs.
They are absolutely true, and have never seen a spoke wrench.
Hope this helps.

|...at least for me they have been. I bought a new pair last year, and after about 1000 miles they've not given me any problems whatsoever (I alternate between the Nuke's and a pair of Campy Shamal's). I weigh between 193 - 198 lbs., and ride on some fairly rough roads in my neck of the woods. The Nuke's are the best climbing/sprinting wheel on the market, IMO.|

|I've only had them for 400+ miles and so far so good. Light, stiff, comfortable and responsive. GREAT in the hills and for sprinting. Just fine in the flats. I keep reading and hearing how bomb proof they are.
The only reason I can think of someone not using them everyday is because they're considered to be a racing wheelset. The mindset behind most folks is that you can purchase a set of (for example) Mavic Open Pros for less than $300 and they weigh about 150 grams more than the Nucleons and serve just as good as a training/every day use wheelset.
To each his own. I have them and use every time I go out. I love'em. I don't race but I train pretty hard and at times with Cat 3-5 racers.
