Do a search of the discussions page about them. I have written a few times about how much I love them. I just ordered a new pair this weekend. I was gonna wait until the summer,but decided not to. I rode a pair of the Aerohead Team Ti's last year and loved them. Best wheels I have personally riden to date. I sold them in the winter because I changed to a Campy 10 drivetrain and those were Dura-Ace wheels. I didn't want to run a conversion cassette on them, because those cassettes are heavy. I also bought a set of American Classic 420's this winter and I wanted to ride those for at least 6 months before I bought another set of Cane Creeks, but I just order my new Volos Ti wheels this weekend. The Volos replaced the Aeroheads. It's available in Ti spokes or Stainless Steel DB spokes. And new for 2003 is that you can get them with a Campy freehub body. So I will post a review when I get them, but I expect it to be late next week. They are slow shipping EP orders, but their customer service is super duper great!

Anyways, you can use the search feature for the discussions... I love the wheels and you will see about a dozen or so posts from me about them. Good luck!

I just got my 2003 Volos SS and so far they've been great. I have about a hundred miles on them or so and unlike my AC 420s, these have stayed arrow straight and true.

I like the offset rear rim and the way you can adjust the bearing pre-load on the hubs, plus I think they're a great looking set of wheels to boot!

They seem pretty stiff laterally, but provide a more comfortable ride in the vertical plane than say my AC 420s, so I'll be using these as my everyday wheels.
