    Have been using classic victorys for 5 yrs and have only just replaced bearings after alot of abuse and miles. Mate swears by his 420s he does TT,s and triathlons on them. Never had to touch a spoke or anything so have been really happy with them.
    Too many bikes according to Mrs O.

    Had the 420's they are very good wheels, put thousands of miles in them, a bit narrow by today's standards, very clever freehub design

    Have a pair of 2012 Aero 420s, haven't had any problems with them. Just recently replaced the bearings, as they're open cartridge ones, and suffer from the elements a little, but replacments ones only costs a couple of quid, so can't really complain.
    Agree on the freehub, good design, lightweight alu with little steel inserts which help prevent the cassette knurling up the freehub.
    Thumbs up

    I've had two summers with my Miche SWRs and I haven't had to touch them. They've been superb. Smooth, stiff and the braking with Swiss Stop Black Prince pads are near to aluminium rim standard
