Strong and reliable; rims too thin

PostedJune 24, 2014
No, I do not recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable
Cons: rim too thin
Bought them in September 2012; ride about 6-7,000 miles a year in all weathers and over sometimes rough terrain. Wheels still nice and straight and not so much as a broken spoke. However, need replacing not much more than 18 months later as rim so worn they're in danger of splitting!
Good value, yes, and reliable. But I don't want to shell out c. £120 and then not get 2 years out of them

Good for training wheels

PostedJune 13, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Comfortable, good for training
Cons: not for racing
In one week rode 700 miles.
These wheels finally became good. Within 4 days I had to return to Evans Store in Gatwick 3 times as one spoke kept on coming lose from spoke nipple.
Evans Cycles replaced all spoke nipples with better quality spoke nipples and now the wheels are 90% OK.
The rear hub is not quite up to top quality as the fitting is lose with about 3mm of play. If the rear hub had a tighter fitting for the rear cassette then the wheels would be 100% perfect.
For training rides these wheels are a good value. I would not race with them as the play in the rear cassette does not allow for a smooth gear change.
Main recommendation is replace spoke nipples.

Sturdy and Light

PostedApril 4, 2014
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I replaced my stock wheels which were buckled. Wieght at around 1.6 kg it is somewherre in the middle but at just over £100, i'd say this is the best. Very light and responsive on the roads. Strong and stable on the trails.

Snazzy looking wheels

PostedJune 18, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Lightweight
I have a 1984 Raleigh team replica, and my original Mavic rims have seen better days so I wanted to replace them economically and these wheels were the right price. The bike has a campag' group set so the fact that the wheels have campagnolo written on them sort of fits. In truth they look a little weird on my old bike with their spoke patterns but hey ho. They seem strong and well made and I'm lucky to have them as the delivery company just left them in the street outside the house, something perhaps Evans could look into.
