    Comments:

    I put these wheels on an early 1980's road bike that I use for commuting to work. I also purchased a new freewheel and chain to go with them. My impressions after a few miles: These wheels roll much more smoothly than the creaky, old wheels that they replaced. I suppose that's not saying much, but I'm pleased with the significant upgrade in ride quality. The wheels were relatively true out-of-the-box: The front wheel was nearly perfect and the rear wheel had only a slight left-right wobble. After I get some more miles on them, I'll bring them by the shop for some final truing. The hubs are sealed, which is good and bad. The good part is that there is nothing to service and you never have to worry about the tightness of the locknuts. They should also do a better job of keeping out water and grit. The downside is that they are not serviceable or adjustable - so you have to accept them as they come. They roll pretty well, but don't expect dura-ace quality bearings. Note that these rims are relatively narrow. [...] also sells a version that is closer to the old 1 1/4" rim size. Also note that these are presta valve only, so be sure to have the proper tubes on hand.Overall: These are affordable, drop-in replacements for an old 6-speed wheelset. I'll have to put some more miles on them to see how well they hold up over time. Recommended for commuting and recreational riding.
