Comments:

I love long distance touring (coast to coast, etc) and have gone through a lot of wheel sets on my present frame (25 years old, and over 60,000 miles), and because of my present finacial situation I had to go for a more affordable set. Well, I am very pleased with what I got for my money. These wheels are good and strudy, and are perfect for the heavy duty touring enthusiast. My only complaint is that when I received them the bearings were a little tight, but that's no big deal only takes a few seconds to adjust. Well in closing, if your looking for a good and affordable set of wheels for some major touring, buy these guys! Also, buy them from a "real" bike shop - Harris Cyclery! Thanks Guys...

Comments:

I very recently bought this set from Harris Cyclery. [...] The wheelset is built on one of Mavic's strongest rims on Sora hubs. When delivered the spoke tension was nice and even, the wheels spun true and the build quality was good. The Sora hubs are not the smoothest but certainly take a beating (I have had a set for years). However, I had to adjust the bearing play when the wheels were delivered, no big deal, but count on spending a few minutes doing this. My bearings arrived too tight and not adjusting the play would have caused premature wear. The nice thing about Sora hubs is that they can easily be repacked and also serviced with new balls every now and then. In summary, this wheelset is good (if you need a heavy duty rim for commuting and touring) and its a fair deal from a very good "real" bikestore.
