    I'm looking at buying a set of Shimano R540s to use for training. Has anyone tried these (or the 535s) before? What did you like / dislike about them?

    I've got a set, done maybe 4-5,00km on them.....you can have 'em for a beer :D

    For the last 5 or 6 weeks that I used them, I was breaking an average of 1 spoke per week. Apart from that they felt like pretty good wheels, if you don't weight to much they should be OK.

    Price wise, they are as good as any other $450 wheel.

    cheers!

    Probably should point out that I'm 82kg.
