I was considering Rolf wheels recently. I visited two local distributors (LBS) of those wheels to learn more.

Boy was I surprised. One place had his last set heavily discounted 'cuz he wanted them to be the last pair he ever sold (after 15 years!). He said they just aren't competitive any longer. Plus he dealt with more failures than with most other brands.

Not a very good recommendation.

Went across town and found the only other dealer handling Rolfs in my area. Wow! Almost identical comments. He absolutely DID NOT want me to buy Rolfs. He didn't have any in stock but said he could order them (but he didn't want to). He's big thing was their failure rate. He tried to turn me on to Reynolds wheels, I think they were.

Just my experience researching them in my area. Not good. Made me very leary. And more leary of the warranty.
