    I like the RS 10s. They're good wheels, comfortable feel on the road, sturdy, and can take a battering. Definitely my favourite budget wheels.

    False economy... £ 140 for a set of disposable wheels, made cutting corners... hard to service or replace parts... a set of handbuilds with top quality spokes, Open Sport rims and good quality hubs, like Novatec, should only cost around £ 180 and little more with Open PRO or other top rims, it will have comparable weight, if not lower, exceed in strength and it will last forever with a bit of maintenance

    Btw I noticed a seller on eBay selling lots of sets of open pro on dura ace, shop soiled I think, for about £200.

    THAT is a bargain... only the hubs are worth more...
