Strengths:    Strong, Durable, Great customer service, easy to work on.

Weaknesses:    They can't take a direct garage hit, but that is my fault for being an idiot.

Bottom Line:   
This is my second set of cobalt's. My first set is when they first came out and I was riding a 26inch wheel. I enjoyed them so much and had a great customer service experience that when I bought my new 29er I went with them again. These are light strong wheels! I dropped legit five pounds from stock wheels that came on my bike.I ride my bikes hard and these wheels have taken everything I have thrown at them. The only thing that they didn't take was me forgetting (after a long night out) that I still had my bike on my roof when I drove them into my garage. Once again though Crank Brothers customer service was great. Another great thing about these wheels are that when they go out of true they are a lot easier to true up then a 32 spoke wheel.
