Does anyone have any experience with these wheels? I am considering buying a pair, but I am concerned they won't stand up to my weight at 185 lbs.

How are you normally on your wheels? Do you tend to trash them? Or are you "light" on your wheels?

I am bigger than you, but I can ride Campy Hyperions if I wanted to.. I am very light on my wheels and I watch what I ride over, and I have good riding form. That is more important than weight. I know riders 50 pounds lighter than me that are harder on their wheels because they just don't know any better.

But from all I have seen and read, I would say that if you wouldn't destroy a pair of 32 hole 3 cross open pros on a shimano hub, you should be fine on the Prima Elans.
