Anyone have any experience/opinions on these wheels?Only that when you evaluate durability feedback, it would be helpful to know how large the riders are relative to you -- unless you already know most people on the forum.

I'd guess any set would hold up differently under a 120 pound female or very light climber on smooth roads versus a 180-pound guy riding rough roads.
