Thinking about getting a bike that comes with these. Any feedback. Thanks Skoots

Skoots,
I ride them as a training wheel. They are strong, wear well and stay true. I have taken down the hubs and they seem OK. They are however a heavy wheelset but thats OK for training and day to day riding, probably not the best for racing though. Overall I have been very happy with mine.

They came with my Scattante. Put 1,400 miles on them so far w/o a problem. Only issue is that they require long stem tubes which I discovered after flatting and trying a standard tube. I would have preferred a 20 + spoke wheel for safety but they came with the bike.
