My wife rode them 4 years before she switched to a 650 bike. The Heliums were good wheels but a lot of riders had problems keeping the rear wheel true. I had to true the wife's rear wheel twice a year, otherwise they were fine wheels and actually lighter than the original Ksyriums. They were available in clincher or tubular, Shimano or Campy. The front wheel is unique in that it has 26 spokes, I think MAVIC still supplies spare parts for Heliums.
