Any body use these? If so, any feedback? Plenty of input on Ksyriums but can't find a review of the Eurus.

Thanks
I'm interested too... (nm)Gregory Taylor

I have been training and racing on them almost daily for four months and they are the best clinchers i have ever ridden.
i cant praise them enough.
stiff and responsive.. sturdy and fast. what else do you need...?

I like them as much if not more than ksyriums.

So, I assume, no problems with them going out of true?

Thanks

I've gotten spoiled with my old K's. 9,000+ miles and never touched them except to clean them or swap bikes. I'm looking to buy another wheelset so I don't have to swap the wheels between my bikes. It's either going to be the new K's or something that I believe to be as light (or lighter) and as durable and trouble free. I've been looking hard at alternatives, including Eurus and Neutron.

I've seen some pretty good prices on Eurus, and they have a trick look, so they have caught my eye. Don't know anyone who has a set, though.

By the way, I'm often as heavy as 170, so I wonder at what point rider weight becomes an issue.

Accelerate like spring boards. Ride smooth. Dosen't have that hollow sound when you hit a bump. I have two bikes built with them. The only negative thing about these wheels is, they are noisy when coasting. But they are styling. Catapult

I'm thinking about a getting a pair with a shimano freehub to replace the Xaeros that are coming stock on the bike I have ordered...

Will the Campy purists of the world attempt to ride me off a cliff for putting italian wheels on an american bike with japanese components?

Converting for some is long but we will bleed the rest out of you later. No! We all have our reasons and we are all on common ground. THE BIKE. But do enjoy the wheels. Catapult

First you say, I'll just try the wheels. Pretty soon, its the seatpost. Then its an entire gruppo, but maybe just Centaur. By then you are so hooked you lie awake at night in cold sweats working out a way to pay for Record and justify it to your SO. Some folks lose all control and start buying Campy undershirts and jerseys. What's really sad , though, are the ones who run out of Campy and settle for anything Italian -- Sidis, Colnagos, etc. Why, I've even seen riders lying around outside the local hardware emporium with empty Mapei tile cleaning bottles lying next to them.

Consider yourself warned.

I think there's time for an espresso and tiramisu before I ride today . . .
