Strengths:    Lightweight, looks good, sounds good, kinda blingy (if that is important) and they are stiff/strong rims.

Weaknesses:    Broke more spokes then normal with these wheels (though the rims always stayed true). Spokes are proprietary and your lbs must by 12 at a time (or so they told me that is how mavic sells them).

Bottom Line:   
I bought these used from a friend who had them as his back up wheelset. They were solid though I did break spokes on ~ 3 occasions over 4 months. These use proprietary hollow aluminum spokes (cool looking) rather than typical steel J bend spokes, so most LBS's will need to order them. Buy an extra few to have with you on trips in case you need a replacement. Overall the wheelset was solid. I did service the rear hub (info can be found online). Easy to service them as they require mineral oil on the pawls...I eventually sold them to get a set of Stans Arch wheels, not because I did not like these, but because I reeeally wanted white rims, so there ya go.
