Does anyone have experience with these wheels? I'm considering them for training/commuting. I'm fairly light so I'm not too worried about stress from my weight, but may be rough on them due to the trail conditions (driveways, curbs, etc). I'm not familiar with the hubs, pbo spokes, or Synergy for that matter.
Thanks for the input!

If you can get them for a good price, they are okay. Synergy has always been plagued with poor hubs despite using several sources. That said, mine are old and I've never had an problems. The pbo spokes do provide a comfortable ride despite being relatively stiff. The downsiode is they are big in diameter which certainly isn't aero.
