Strengths:    Lightweight, stiff, good price. LOUD hub.

Weaknesses:    LOUD hub. Only available via mail order from the UK.

Bottom Line:   
Great wheelset. Even with only 24 spokes it feels far stiffer than my previous Mavic/XT wheel. What I has thought was some frame flex was actually the old wheels. Hope hubs are as loud as people say... that'd a mixed blessing. On singletrack it certainly is an easy way to announce you are coming up to a hiker.

Hope don't sell wheelsets in the US but ordering from CRC in the UK was incredibly easy. Ordered Sunday evening online, wheels arrived the following Friday, no duty and free shipping, can't beat that.
