Anyone care to share their experiences with Ksyrium Elites? Positives? Negatives? Trying to narrow down my selection for new wheels. Thanks.

First, I weigh from 175lbs to 190lbs depending on time of year. I've had my Elites trued 4 or 5 times in the 6 months I've had them.
Second, they are not light.
Third, they are comfortable and I can sense the aero qualities at speeds above 19 mph.
I am no expert, however, my Elites are only my second pair of wheels but they are not that much better than my old Mavic CXP 21s w/ Ultegra hubs. People rave about Open Pros I don't think a lot of people would rave about Elites.

I weigh 175 and have put about 1,000 miles on them on rough roads. To date, haven't had to touch them for trueness or anything else. These aren't the lightest wheels, but they aren't heavy either. I also find the ride to be very plush compared to my previous wheels which were Rolf Vector Comps. The Elites have been a great upgrade for me. I got them brand new on E-bay for quite a bit less then retail. I hope this helps.
