Anyone riding these at the moment?
I need to know if it is a good pair of wheels to invest in.
Racing or training or both?

I know I sound like a broken record, but http://www.speeddream.com/road.php is excellent.
Racing and/or training.

Is "racing or training or both?" a question or your desire?

saw this pair on ebay. I have 404 clinchers which are similar. I think the ulimate clincher deep aero wheel is the new reynolds. As an FYI they will have a clincher disk in the Summer. That will be my 2005 set of race wheels for TT's. lighter but stronger.

There's a spankin' good deal on 404's at http://www.endurosport.com/equipment/cy ... heels.html

Call in to see if the special is still in effect...

Look, I have read most of the threads about the best wheels to get. But these are fairly well priced at my LBS, and they are quite light.
Thus I would like to know if someone is riding them at the moment, and who could give me some feedback on them.

Compared to Ksyriums SL, they are almost the same weight and MUCH CHEAPER. But I want to know if they're bombproof, stiff, good for racing, good for training, easy to maintain(ie spoke breakage of Ksyriums are fairly expensive)

Any feedback appreciated
