    I've got a pair. Pretty good at that price, I paid close to £200 when they first came out. The build on mine wasn't the greatest, they had to go back once and even then they kept going out of true, but £15 spent at the LBS having them retensioned and they've been straight as an arrow ever since. At £200 there are better handbuilts but for £130 you can't go wrong. They look good too, especially now they are using black spokes instead of the silver like mine.

    I've got a pair on my winter bike. The rear one wasn't completely true when it arrived and it's got a small flat spot, but they're pretty robust and not too heavy.
