Used to ride HED Ardennnes and I think the Giant wheels are as good or maybe a little better. Very even tension on the spokes, perfectly round, but you can however see that they are only 16 spokes in the front wheel. quote]
You mention the front wheel spoke count, are you suggesting that the wheels feel flimsy or 'light-duty' when cornering? Unstable?
No no, the wheels are really stable. I did a lot of descending and they were very good, probably the best I have had. Giving me a good stable feeling. The comment about 16 spokes were refering to the front wheel not beeing perfectly true as low spoke counts tend to twist the rim a little. But it's very little and nothing to worry about.
