Anyone try BBW's Pure Aero Wheels?

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

Anyone try BBW's Pure Aero Wheels?

Just wondering if anyone had any experience with Bicycle Wheel Warehouse's
Pure_Aero
wheels. They would go on my Giant OCR-A1, so it is not a race bike by any means and weight is not an issue. I know that BBW gets pretty good reviews from most here. I just was hoping that someone had tried these and had some input on them.

Wouldn't that be abbreviated "BWW"? I think BBW stands for something else entirely...

Stupid typo,. Maybe this tread might get a little more traffic with the BBW title though.

I have them on my commuter, they are just like velocity deep v but slightly heavier/maybe stronger since they have a thicker braking surface area. I haven't had them for long so I cant give an opinion yet. maybe in a month or two i will review them.
