    Does anyone have these? Thinking of buying a set ...

    What kind of riding do you do?
    Are they durable?
    What else would you consider?
    Would you use with D/A 10 speed?

    I am 6,2 90kg and reasonably strong. I like riding hills and longer rides (100k+)

    Cheers

    I have a set of Nucleons that i bought used, and I really like them alot. Typical Campy quality and design. The Nukes are the same as Neutrons except for the spoke finish (I think). I am 5'9" , 162#....

    I just bought a set of Campy Neutrons. Took the first ride on them today.
    So far so good. (big deal one ride) I did do some research on these wheels at http://www.roadbikereview.com/
    All the reports were top notch. I'm 190 lbs and never gave a second thought of getting them after reading the reviews.
    They're light weight and look nice. They come with skewers, lockring and Campy wheel bags. I love em.
    Good luck.

    I like them so much I bought a second set last summer, I have two different gear clusters on them 11-23 and 13-24 I think. I have had no issues at all except when I got to close to my wifes rear der., bent a few spokes on my front wheel :eek: . It was a quick and easy repair by Campy through my LBS, I sent both wheels out at the time to have the rear check and they didn't have to true or tension the rear after over 2k miles :D

    I've been riding Neutrons for ~2yrs and love them. They are still as straight as the day I bought them. In fact, I just ordered the carbon version which should arrive later this week! Good luck.

    Have to concur with the others. I have had them on my bike for 2 years now. I am 6' and 172lbs and put about 200 or so miles/week on them. No problems whatsoever.
