I've had them for a couple of months and, so far, have no complaints. It could just be my imagination, but I seem to be quicker this spring (my second spring of serious road cycling). I'm not sure if it's the Elites, the Rubino tires or stronger legs.
A few weeks back, a riding buddy and me entered a long descent with me trailing him by about 20 yards. Without pedalling, I caught up to him and passed him as we approached the bottom of the hill. I'm convinced it was the wheels' aerodynamics that gave me this edge. But they weren't much help on the way back up: my buddy, being much stronger, beat me soundly.
