I ordered these for a Surly LHT to replace the old road wheels I have used for 5 years that came stock on a trek 1000 road bike (Alex A455..something). The packaging was good,[...] and the condition of the wheels was good - some superficial marks on the rims and on the freehub body, but barely anything. Hub adjustment was good, though just a *hair tight. Nothing a couple of cone wrenches can't fix.The rear wheel was destressed very well, and true radially extremely well, and laterally quite good. I probably turned 4 nipples each less than 1/4 of a turn to get it perfect.The front wheel needed destressing on several spokes (obviously machine built), and after that it took some lateral truing. After a few minutes, it was good to go. For a machine-built wheelset they seem a good value for the $. If you have at least *some experience truing wheels, you'll probably like them a lot. I need to put miles on them to see how my full opinion is, but they seem good.
I'm a heavier biker who carries loads (230# + load) and broke a spoke on my factory 32 spoke rims. This bike is one I use for commuting to work, grocery shopping, and longer (30+ mile) trips where I can't break a spoke. I debated getting custom wheels, but Harris Cyclery has a good reputation so I gave these a try. They're very nice. I'm more connected to the road, yet the wheels handle bumps far better than my old ones. I'm more confident on longer rides and when carrying heavy loads. The packaging wasn't very good. One axel of each wheel wore through the cardboard and stuck out. Thankfully, the wheels were tough enough that no damage was incurred. There were superficial marks on parts of the rims; I'm not sure where they came from. These wheels changed the ride of my bike for the better and I'd recommend them.
Incredible! I rode fully loaded from the Virginia coast to Yellowstone and never had to replace a spoke much less get them trued. I weigh 185 pounds and was probably carrying more weight than the normal fully loaded person who would be taking this trip. I also was riding on the less than 36 spoke count version of this wheel. I have probably put on another 2,000 miles on them since my trip and still not even one wobble! (6000+ with no problem) Last 2000 miles was on bumpy city streets and usually with a load.
