    Strength:

    very fast,light and stable wheel
    doesn't need much truing, EVER!
    Great for XC riding and racing

    Weakness:

    Not great for downhill or trailriding
    Easily damaged by log crossings and rocks
    The only thing I have had happen twice this summer is:
    1)Damaged wheel rim (spoke pulled out) and spoke, sent to Cane Creek for total rebuild (THANKS!)
    2)Damaged spoke after derailleur hanger was torn off in fall, taken to bike shop to repair and they have to order spoke from Cane Creek (2-3 weeks)
    Seems problematic for this to happen so minus 1 chili

    Cane Creeks are great wheels, but the only problem I can see with them is if you damage them you are out a set of wheels for a while....

    Strength:

    Where do I start ? Lightweight, Excelent design, Looks great, Titanium Spokes, Titanium Freewheel - Customer Service.

    Weakness:

    Price

    These Wheels were built for speed. The Ti spokes are very durable. If you dont care about disk brakes these wheels are the best - peroid ! The Customer service Is outstanding.
    I bought some Salsa Ti Scewers and the back axle was too small for the Sewers, they sent me a COMPLETE rear wheel rebuild for free...
