Anyone have any experiences with Velomax Orion or Ascent comps. Would really appreciate your thoughts.

I have been riding Velomax Orion wheels for about 3 months now and have been very pleased with them. Prior to this wheelset, I was riding Mavic Open Pros / Dura Ace for about a year. In my opinion, the Orions ride much nicer and I noticed a difference in ride quality right off the bat. So far, I have about 1,400 miles on the wheels and they are still true and perfect.

I have had two pair of Orion Comp's and have been happy with them. On my first pair, I put about 2,000-2,500 miles on them before selling them with my bike. I weigh 210 lbs and they stayed true and seemed plenty stiff. My second pair has close to 1,000 miles and they are doing fine. On the scond pair, I can sometimes feel a very slight thump from the rim when braking. It is just not quite as smooth as the first pair. But I think they went to a new rim for the 02' line, so that shouldn't be a problem. I went with these wheels just to have something a little different, becuase everyone in my group rides Ksyriums.
