One of the big guys in our club rides the M28 aeros. He's about 6'5, maybe 225 or so, and has not reported any problems with them.
On the bike, they look quite svelte. The build seems well done with attention to detail and the spokes and rim are very sturdy.
The M28 is not as beefy in the spokes, but the relatively deep rims and the 20F,radial/24R, 3x pattern should hold up well. You would save some weight here over the aeros.
If I were in the market for an everyday wheelset, they would be worth a look to me.

Just visited the site. I think that it is fairly new because it has some formating problems. But wow, those are some sexy wheels! I've yet to see a set of wheels like those for $200. I was thinking about having colorado cyclist build me up a set of open pros with ultegra hubs. But now, I don't know.
Also, for being an aero rim, isn't 1,700 grams relativly light? Just for my perspective, what does a pair of open pros weigh (700c).

I'm trying to be a skeptic, but I really like those wheels, the guy seems legit too. But remember the saying, "If it looks to good to be true..."
