One partner Lee, 210 lbs,strong rider told me they were rock solid after he rode them for a couple of months. A month later, broke a rear spoke.
270 lb friend Jack said they were rock solid. Couple of months later broke a spoke. Retired from riding so no updates.
220 lb double century rider SemperFi (Larry) had them on his roadie. Found several cracks around the nipples of the rear. Had it replaced them more problems after that. Replaced them with Velomax wheels. Retired from the forums so no updates on the Velomax.
A 165 lb rider (don't remember name) was riding along side me on a 5k foot mtn climb. Preaching to me that I should ditch my heavy Ultegra/Deep V wheels. As he's preaching he feels somthing funny in his front wheel. Stops to check it. Front hub was falling apart (came unscrewed?). Stated he had used Supergo housebrand Korso wheels (black with red label/$199 sale/) with no problems and very durableafter thousands of miles.
190 lb partner buys an $8,000 Time bike. While riding he here's this awful ticking noise in the wheels. Took it back to the shop, checked it out, readjusted, still awful noise present. Shop warranties the wheel and replaces with a new one after several attempts. Within the last few rides so no updates on the wheel yet.
At 230, I wouldn't drop $800 bux on 'em! Maybe for my wife's bike, but not my heavy butt!
