I bought the clincher version of this wheel 2 1/2 years ago. Light, smooth, solid and true - couldn't have been happier. Just when I was considering buying another set of Rovals for a second bike, things turned sour though: the CLX40 started to develop significant pulsing, making for hazardous downhill rides. Upon examination, I discovered heavily damaged brake tracks and significant deformation of the carbon rims. I am glad my dealer talked me into Campagnolo Boras. I am still working on my warranty claim with Specialized which is proving difficult. Unless you ride on essentially flat terrain and do not use your brakes very much, I cannot recommend these wheels.
