I just bought a shimano m535 wheelset and have found it too be noticably sluggish. I was wondering if anyone has tried this wheelset and found a similar result. Also is there any hope that the hub may just need some miles on it to be broken in? Thanks

What do you mean by sluggish - resistance to roll? I have 2 sets and have found both to be great at spinning.

I have heard that Shimano grease is notoriously bad and that it is not uncommon to regrease new wheels.

Also, how much was your set and where did you get them?

Are you one the M or R version The M are mountain bike I think that extra inch of tire may be rubbung on your roady frame and slowing you down. Just kidding and the same question where did you get them I had some on order from seankelly.com but after 3-4 months of excuses why they couldn't be delivered i canceled my order in disgust and found out they had lost their supplier.
