Mine are still going strong.

I do get some splintering type sounds when I'm hard on the gas with these wheels though. I suppose that's to be expected with all the carbon joints!

What pads are those? Looks like dark blue/grey colour on the cannondale garmin team bikes from this year

I experienced similar bearing problems on mine. I've used them exclusively for racing in the past three years. Not very much use, but pretty hard use, including kermesses. I had my mechanicn replace the cartridges on the front, after cleaning and relubing the contact surfaces. Seems to have muted them. Also replaced the bearings with ceramic ones - at least the wheel is now willing to spin!
