rovals were made for time trialing...the most spokes that they came with was 24, and you find them more normally in 20 or 16(!). These aren't Rolfs with the big beefy rims. These babies were light. I have been riding a set (24x20) for a couple of years with no problem, but I don't ride 'em on anything rough, and don't go honking around the corners when I'm on 'em. They are fun, though.
