American Classic wheels?

Hi everyone.

I posted this in the SSFG forum the other day but it doesn't seem like very many people there have experience with these wheels, so I thought I'd try here.

http://www.amclassic.com/track_clincher.html

Does anyone here ride these? any issues with them? pros and cons?

They'd be going on my Fuji track pro which I ride on the road and the track.

I weigh about 155-160 pounds and try to avoid as many potholes in the road as I can, so I'm not too hard on wheels.

Thanks.

I posted in your other thread.

I would say, when it comes down to it, if you have a really good deal on them go for it.

Otherwise there are other wheels I would go for over those. Those hubs are a pain.

Cool, I read your posts in the other thread, thanks for the input!

I work at a shop so I'd only be paying cost plus shipping for the wheels.

These wheels are perfect for what I'm looking for being quite light with deep section rims, but I'm still keeping an eye out for something similar in the same price range.
