|I am upgrading my wheels, I have narrowed the choice down to Rolph Vectra comp, Rolph Vectra Pro, Mavic Ksyrium or Shimano Ultegra. Any recommendations?|

|http://www.oddsandendos.com, they are $385 and come in WAY lighter than any of those wheelsets- around the 1325 gram area.|

|Why Rolf at all? Those wheels haven't been made in a couple years, aren't currently being made, have always been subject of bad reviews and I don't believe there is any warranty at all. Rolf is not a viable company right now at all.
2nd on the American Classic recommendation. Serious bang for your buck. I've got a pair. 420s.

|I have no knowledge of Am Classic wheels.
However, to address some inconsistencies in the above posters statements:
Rolfs haven't been distributed by Trek for one (1) year.
Rolfs are currently still being made (http://www.freewheel.com/rolf/)
Rolf Vector Pros have a 4+ review rating on this website
If you have problems with Rolfs you bought from an authorized Trek dealer (or that came on a Trek bike), Trek will warranty them, though you'll probably get Bontrager wheels back.
Having said all that, I wouldn't buy a used Rolf, as there is no warranty support in that instance. Also, the American Classics look purty (so do the Zipps).

|I doubt pre-Trek Rolfs will be warrantyable at all. Can they even be fixed if there's a problem? Who knows.
Nothing in the reveiw section here gets bad reviews.
Rolfs have always been subject to bad reviews in real life, coming out of true, etc.
Rolf has been *working on* those wheels for quite some time now. They are not being made at this time and are not purchasable. He (just a guy working on some ideas) is not a viable company right now.
