This is an addendum to an earlier review. I used a spoke wrench and trued the rear wheel with just a couple of tweets. I'm giving it one more star as I'm a good deal more satisfied now. I have this wheelset on an old Masi that I've had for years. It looks better than ever.
Rear wheel went 3 mm out of true the moment tire was mounted and it hit the road. Here's a strange thing. These rear hubs have only ONE nut with a flat on it on either side. Just how does Shimano expect me to adjust the bearings? OK. I have a work around: I grab the end lock nut which is round with a Vise Grip and loosen the nut with a flat on it with a cone wrench. Sure I buggered up the lock nut a bit. Pitty too on a new wheel.
