    Torelli Bormio Pista

    Has anyone had experience with the Torelli Bormio Pista wheels?
    http://www.torelli.com/parts/torelli...ta-wheels.html

    They look pretty nice. And just under $300.
    Thoughts? Opinions? Experiences?

    I tried the search function. The results doesn't give me anything conclusive. There were only 2 posts about it. Google doesn't turn up anything either.

    No, not exactly but I CAN vouch for Torelli's road bike wheels. I'm convinced that they compare favorably to wheels costing about twice the price in some cases.
    My two cents and a bump as well. Torelli fans know of such. It's like a "club".

    they are fine. they hold up well enough. i needed to get them retrued only after they hit a ridiculously huge pothole that caused front and rear flats. actually, only the rear needed retruing. the front was fine. the black anodized brake track will wear down to silver. the weight is pretty much accurate as listed on the site. they are lighter than a velocity deep-v wheelset would be. the stickers are removable. what else would you like to know?

    thanks for the responses, guys. I like Torelli as well. Used to own a bike from Torelli before it got stolen.

    gospastic, did you get yours as a wheelset? Do they only come in wheelsets? I can't seem to find a place that only sells the rims. If so, what hubs do they run?

    got the full wheelset. i don't think they sell just the rims. the hubs are torelli stamped, but they look like some standard formulas w/ cartridge bearings. they spin for a loooong time though.
