    I purchased themn for 130 dollars and have been on 2 training rides of 20 miles and one ralley of 63 miles. they rock. i just sold my mavic kxyriums on ebay and decided to keep the velomax vistas. they roll better that the mavics and it has a 28 or 30 mm lengh for better aero dynamics and it is noticable. good luck. by the way, they are not to much heavier than the mavics.

    YES!!!! They came with my KHS Flite 700. They are not technically "for sale" and come with KHS and Cervelo bikes (perhaps some others). I called Velomax a few months back and asked about them, as I wanted a second pair, and he informed me of this. I was interested because they are an EXCELLENT low-cost wheelset.
    The weight is somewhere around 1730-1750 grams for the wheelset. They are not a low-spoke wheelset, so they are very strong. An aero wheel, they are about 30mm. Generally they have SHimano compatible hubs, BUT some were made with Campagnolo compatible hubs. The gentleman at Velomax informed me that the Campy compatible hubs are "a screaming deal"...i.e. that they are excellent.
    These are a very solid wheelset. I raced them successfully this summer, and took them out for about 1/2 my training rides. They have not been out of true once.
