Roval Fusee SL: Reports?

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Roval Fusee SL: Reports?

Have any of you put serious mileage on your set of Roval Fusee SL wheels? How have they held up? Comments on the hubs, rims and ride quality appreciated.

I have alot of mileage on mine. They hold up reasonably well, but I did have a problem with the spoke holes cracking and they replaced it under warranty. That was pretty early on, I probably have 15K-20K miles on them since then.

Thanks umd -- how would you rate the ride quality and feel? Also what is your riding weight?

They are my favorite wheels other than my Reynolds carbon race wheels. I prefer them to the Ksyrium SL or ES. I weigh about 145.

Oh yeah, they came with my Tarmac SL... don't know that I would have bought them otherwise. I was going to sell them but put them on and was like "wow, these are nice". They aren't particularly light though.

What would you have gone with instead of them? I have a Tarmac with Ultegra wheels. I was thinking about trying to find a set of Roval's as a second set, but would like to trim some weight if I do.

I have a lot of wheels so I would have just used one I had. I was primarily using my r-sys at the time iirc.
