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

I have the 7701s and love them. Approximately 10K miles on it, never been damaged or needed a minor truing adjustment. Biggest problem ... getting the Conti GP 3Ks that I use on this rim is a !@#(*&!*@^*&$@(#&$) in the ...

Other than that, I have no complaints. They are lighter than Ksyriums but not as light as Ascents. Stiffer than Ascents but probably don't roll quite as smoothly.

Best.
