The Apex-equipped 2.1 has been a bit of a hard sell. With many users of 105 and Ultegra triples, you have to pry the STI levers out of their cold dead fingers. Double-tap is a bit of a learning curve for riders who've been using STI for a while, but you get the hang of it. In my experience it is a bit fussier about being kept in proper tune, though.

At this price all stock wheels are going to be a bit heavy. On the other hand, they hold up well, especially after Bontrager gave up on paired spoke patterns. Save them for winter after the upgrade.
