Look at Slowtwitch, there are few posts of Caden wheels users.
I'd be also interested to hear/read more in depth first hand review on Decadence line.

With the disclaimer that I only have three rides on my deCADENce 38mm clincher I will say that I am very impressed. Very.

They are light at 1320g including rim tape, they are quite stiff and handle my 77kg flawlessly. The first ride was in crazy strong wind and a bit of rain and the wheels were almost completely unaffected, when the wind did hit them it was a controlled push rather than a sudden yank (if that's proper English..?). Tires were easy to mount and 25mm Conti GP 5000 sit flush with the rim.

Braking is good and certainly better than both Fulcrum Quattro Carbon and Mavic Cosmic Pro Carbon SL which I have had the past year. It's not perfect and the pads will probably need a bit more bedding in before I will know the full extend of it.

The workmanship and look/feel is impressive and the freehub sound is intoxicating. Probably placebo but they seem to make me ride hard and really attack any climbs (no mountains and mostly short sharp "bergs" where live).

All in all I am massively impressed but again it's only after a few rides.

Any specifics you wanna know?

Braking: Crap in the wet like any other carbon wheel. Decent on dry.
Everything else: Amazing bang for buck. Stiff, lively, light as hell. For clinchers, there's other options out there but for tubulars, I don't think I would buy any other brand.

On 30sec - 1min uphill KOM attempts I keep wheelieing them :D

Also the owner, Ben Cawood, is an awesome dude.
