cxmagazine.com did a review. They're alright. You may want to also take a look at Revolution Wheelworks or even BF.net's own Psimet2001. He's got some good prices as well.

I actually set up mine as a direct response to William's offer. Not to directly compete but to offer up options with better spokes and hubs. as well as custom lacing. You might find my prices to be a better value overall but that's your call.

You don't need fancy wheels for cross. I'd stalk ebay for some used wheels in solid shape. Tiagra hubs with Velocity Escape or Mavic Reflex rims would be a good bet too.

Why are they using 14gauge spokes for the wheelset? That is the deal breaker for me. Neuvation has a similar wheel that is significantly lighter for about the same money.
Also, a reflex is a nice rim as it is fairly light and is much wider which can allow the tubulars a better profile than a narrow rim. Zipp and Hed have been going in that direction even for road wheels so it seems fairly natural to use it for a cross wheel as well.

They went with straight gauge because they are cheaper.
That's why the ones I am selling are using DT comps or Sapim CX Ray....or anything else you could possibly want to use.
My prices beat both Williams and Neuvation. My value beats them both if you consider that I use better hubs and spokes.

your stuff is definitely nice, but I was just pointing out what I thought was a knock on those wheels.
for my money I would go with you or neuvation

Here's a picture of my clincher version. The tubulars are the same.
