My Bianchi Pista came with Alex AT400 rims.

If I remember correctly, these rims weigh an astoundingly light 405 grams.

I weigh 235 all up and ride hard.

During the first year, before I upgraded my wheels, the Alex rims did great, considering.

I broke one rear spoke in 5000+ miles.

These wheels now hang in my garage with tires, tubes and cog mounted in case I need an emergency wheel.

Not everyone has had as good an experience with these same wheels as I have, but I more than got my money's worth.
