Looking at the weight listings, the Spada clincher wheels are pretty lightweight. Does anyone have any experience with them? How are they for durability and reliability? Thanks!

I love my Spada clinchers. In fact other than my bomber do anything wheels they (Spada wheels) are all I own. Durability and reliability have been excellent, I took a set of Stiletto over to France for my trip, they spent several weeks climbing most days in the mountains of the Tour without any issues and survived the first week in Belgium and the north over the cobbles.

They rank as our lightest wheelset in our list http://weightweenies.starbike.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=550&start=135 for the Lightest Clincher Wheelset.
The list is a little more exhastive than the listing section but is mainly taken off producer claims.

I have a set of those as well, but wanted something with more rugged rims for the cobbles.

I just got a set from mark at spada on ambrosia excellight scc rims. only had two rides on them but lighter than my mavic ssc's and not as harsh a ride. These were real cheap for training wheels, as I race on 303 tub's.
The freewheel took both rides to freeup properly.
