    Vuelta Corsa HD Wheels

    Hi all I'm a Clyde just joining the forum. Has anybody had any experience with Vuelta Corsa HD wheels? I am looking to upgrade my wheels and they look like they could be a viable option.

    It appears they may be, just have them hand tensioned when they get to you.

    If you're checking them out at Nashbar, you can't beat that price. Follow Tom's advice and bring them to your LBS to have them hand stressed and tensioned by a for-real-human-being before riding them and they should be fine. I've got a big-box-bike-shop machine built wheel that I stressed/tensioned myself and it's holding up really well.

    Well, I ordered the Vuelta Corsa HD wheelset last night from Nashbar. I will report back once I receive them and put some miles on them.

    Sorry to revive a 6 month old thread, but thought my input may be valuable since the OP never responded with a review.

    These.wheels. ROCK. For the price (I got them on sale and with a special coupon for $129), these things spin forever. I have about 1,000 miles on them and whichever bike they are on has become my new favorite ride for my 8 mile (one way) commute. These wheels are solid, however the only issue I've had with them so far is in mounting a 700x35 tire, the Forte Gotham. I had a LOT of trouble, blowing one tube, and unable to get the bulge by the valve stem to go away. I've changed many a tube/tire in my life, and this was difficult. Started thinking maybe the rim was not rated for a 35 tire, so going back to what rolls well - the 700x25 or 700x28. Could just be the tire itself, but not risking a blowout going down a hill at 40 mph.

    Hope this helps any Clydes out there looking for a good inexpensive wheelset.
