Does anyone have info on these wheels. I know they are on the heavy side, but how do they ride? How do they hold up? The reviews on this site are mixed?
Any info is apperciated!

These are really nice wheels, especially for training. I've put two years of hard training (400 miles/week) on them and have had few problems.

I've been using them for about 2 years as well, and they have held up very well. They might not be the lightest thing, but they roll nicely.

My only complaint is that my rear wheel tends to get yanked out of true more often than I'd like. I'm not a big rider, but more often than not after only a few hundred miles it is out, and it is a real pain to get it back in true.

I can true a wheel, but with this one I've learned to just drop it off at the shop for a day or two and let a pro do it. It's been a lot easier and less irritating.
