James, I have about 500 miles on a new set of Cosmos wheels that came with a New Litespeed Ultimate. They are not bad at all. I weigh 180lbs have had the wheels over some very rough surface over the last 500 miles and if they can handle this they should be OK!. One of my concerns presently is where can I get spare spokes for both the ront and the rear. I have been to several LBS that are Mavic dealers and they say they can special order the spokes but they do not stock them, something to think about. They are very smooth rolling wheels, I also have a brand new set of Mavic CXP33's built on some new Ultegra hubs they too are great probably better than the Cosmos as far as durability and if you order them from Excel or Colorado cyclist you can specify spokes and rim color. The Cosmos also, look great if that matters, they look very much like Mavic Open Pro's but don't have all of the Pro's features. Check out this review, plus their are a few on this web site. Good luck!

I have a set with 3600+ miles on them. I'm 185lbs., ride all sorts of roads- urban & rural and my wheels haven't needed a thing. I'm totally satisfied.
