    I wouldnt just because it uses some generic hub deal. Spend just a little more and get a good hub.

    Formula to Mavic CXP22. I don't remember where they are, but I'm sure someone will chime in.

    Great wheels for descents. You can use them for climbs too.

    picked up a set of velocity deep v + formula hubs, 90*degrees trued at my LBS yesterday for $200. they said they got the wheelset 6 months ago priced at $300 and they werent selling, so they dropped it down to $200~ check your asdfwf LBS for good deals! ;D

    The guy is redundant but he's right, check with your "L"ocal "B"ike "S"hop and see what they have first.

    they look like sealed formula hubs to me but I still wouldn't buy them for that price.
