Neuvation M28Aero wheels for cross duty

I have a couple sets I use with my road bikes and would like to press them into duty this fall/winter when I give cross racing a try. I expect them to get beat to crap, but the price is hard to beat and I really like the wheels.

Does anyone else have any off road/Cyclocross experiences with these wheels? Good? Bad? In between if i get a wheel truing stand?

Thanks.

I hop curbs on my neuvations with my road bike. They're strong wheels and John Neugent is a model for the industry in terms of customer service. Buy them and you won't regret it.

I've seen guys race with them. They should hold up fine.

Thanks! I'll go ahead and bash em up!!

Hey Chuck - I have 3 set of his wheels. 2 sets of black m28s and 1 silver R28sl2. No need to buy mor except maybe his $900 carbon tubular set for RRs and TTs for next season. Though if i trash em doing cross, they're cheap to replace. I've already had the customer service experience first hand when i broke a M28 hub halfway thru a century. I had a new set of wheels in less than a week. The guy is great!
