Matty, there is NO question which 50% of us were right...the fifty percent that have had the misfortune of underestimating the strength of a wheelset, some get lucky and pop three spokes and throw the true and that's that - others, just having let their guard down have a situaition out of their hands that has them taking evasive action or whatnot and BING BAM BOOM you're seriously injured.
But all that said, I'm DEFINITELY NOT wanting/hoping/anything with regards to being right and I hope the wheelset is the last wheelset you ever own but my money says you're looking for a new set by March, hopefully you'll be in one piece when you're doing so.
But yep! night and day on a mountain specific set to a road/race set eh? You gotta love it!
