Your opinion on Rolf Vector ProsPeterRider

I got a set of Rolf Vector Pros with a second hand bike. What do you think of those wheels ? And also, are they solid, with so few spokes, would you use them for everyday rides ? I am 175#, is that too heavy ? I wonder about keeping them or selling them...

Thanks for your advice,

Pierre

I was riding Vector Pros when I weighed 185+, and they were fine. I beat the hell out of them on bad roads for a year, and they never went a mm out of true. They are very strong, STIFF wheels. I've seen them used for cyclocross even.
I sold mine a few months ago. I got a new bike that came with Ksyriums, and I couldn't afford to keep both. I think the Rolfs were comparable to the K's, but I kept the K's because they were new.

I'm female, 5'10" @ 150 lbs. I also got a pair of Vector Pros on a used Zurich I bought last year. I ride these wheels every day on San Diego roads (not horrible, but not greaat. either).
The guy I bought the bike from raced these wheels. In the time I have had the bike they've never needed truing. They are strong and light. The only caveat is they sometimes get a bit squirrelly in a crosswind, due the the deep rims.
Overall, though, I have no qualms about using these as my everyday wheels.
