anyone had any experience (first hand or anecdotal) with the cane creek volos? my main concern is stiffness, considering i'm a "big guy" at 6'4" 200lb-ish. oh, in case anyone is curious, this would be exclusively track.
tossing around the idea of getting a pista concept complete vs. frameset

i have a pair... havent used them yet but they look super stiff and so far I know everybody says that are hard to kill.

Campagnolo Pista wheels are slightly heavier than most other wheelsets, but stiff as hell from what I've heard.

Ridden Cane Creeks on the road - a stiff as boiled spaghetti. Beware.
Campag Pistas are too heavy, not aero, too expensive for what you get.
Why not 32 hole high flange hubs with some Mavic Reflex rims?

cane creek volos are not stiff at all.
If you want stiff wheels I would suggest a nicely built wheelset with some high flange hubs.
Nice track hubs, whatever you can afford. dt competitions plus a boxed rim, aeroheads are nice.
