I've seen the rims mentioned as a good alternative to mavic offerings, but what about the wheelsets?

from what i've seen, they look to be hard to find and expensive for an equivalent product. (ie: vs. Zipps)

the Antaras and Speedlites look pretty bitchin though, and would be absolutely perfect on this all italian speed machine i have planned...
anybody use them? weight? durability?

A chap I ride with has them on his Maestro supplied Ciocc Flyer.

They are very nice, lightweight, and look great if you like "classic" wheelsets. He's had no problems with them.

and love them. I have ridden hundreds and hundreds of miles on them without having to true them. They are very smooth.
