Curious to see what others may think of this WTB cyclocross wheelset. More of an mtb-based set but should be durable...

They are not the best deal.
First of all...with 135 spacing...99% of real cross bikes have 130 spacing.(yeah...you can spread a steel frame...and I have forced a alum frame in a pinch)
They are kind of heavy for racing....maybe fine for training/riding.
Rims,spokes and hubs are are plenty strong....but without knowing how/who made them, it's hard to know how strong they really are. I have bought too many wheels that fell apart like a Chinese motorcycle.
