|Is it a sturdy set or is it flexy due to the low spoke count ?

|I have the Nucleons, with even fewer spokes. Rock solid as it gets.

|I have two set Campy Protons, one setup with 8 speed and the other with 9 speed. I got these wheels about 11 months ago and they haven't need any truing yet. When I got them I weigh 190 lbs and they handle the weight pretty well, now I'm down to 165 lbs and they have 25 lbs less to stress them out. I don't notice any flex in the wheels, the only problem with them is getting the tires on them, I guess that why they make tire levers.|

|I had them for a year on a 62cm steel Serotta. They were outstanding wheels, never needed truing, spun up quickly, no flex at all, etc. Great wheels.
The only thing I did notice is that when I switched to CXP30s, which have more spokes (and Record hubs; the Protons are Chorus-level), the ride is nicer.

|I haven't noticed any flex, and they have not needed truing in over 3000 miles (that's 5000 km for the rest of the world). I weigh 185 lbs / 82 kg.|

|I have ridden them on road and for CX this year and am very impressed. Much better performance at the pricepoint than the Mavic Cosmos I also ride. I'm 170'ish, and stand alot when climbing, no flex issues here.|
|thanks all, I think I will make the purchase. n.m.||G-T-|
