Strengths:    cheap, bladed spokes, black, for V-brakes and centerlock disc-brakes, easy to service, look nice (without or with the stickers)

Weaknesses:    a bit heavy, need (yet another) special wrench to true the wheel

Bottom Line:   
After 8 months the wheels are still ok.
The rear wheel might need to be trued a little, but I need to buy the specific tool (Park SW-14).
The rear axle cones also needed to be tightened, but that was easy to do + I regreased it. The front axle was ok.
So not a bad wheelset after all, just keep an eye on the cones or tighten them when you buy these wheels.
I was pleased with the fact that they are low-maintenance, hold my weight without breaking spokes or truing all the time.
Considering the price I give them anoter 5 peppers :-)

Strengths:    bladed spokes, V-brake and centerlock compatible, black, removable stickers, not expensive

Weaknesses:    none so far, you usually get what you pay for

Bottom Line:   
Needed a front wheel urgently because rim is about to snap after almost 5 years (Mavic X221).
Didn't want to spend lots of $$$ so bought this set instead of buying rim/spokes/hub seperately.
Weight: front+skewer=1040g and rear+skewer=1225g, total of 2265g. Looks heavy but if they feel good and hold my weight (90kg) then I'm happy.
Noticed a tiny hole on each side of the rims (front and rear). Don't really know what it's for.
I put some Velox rim-tape on the wheels and will test them as of next weekend. The stickers will be removed soon (don't like too many stickers). Stay tuned...
