These alloy wheels are very nice. I have just a few hundred miles on them so far, but they are a very good replacement for my original steel wheels. Interestingly, they are so light that the whole front end steering dynamic is changed. [Something I need to get used to.]
PROS: high quality material and machining; very lightweight; an excellent 1:1 size upgrade for someone wanting to keep their older bike as original as possible; Bikeman ships them already trued up.
CON: the presta valve stem hole seems slightly too large, just a bit too much clearance (at least compared with what I have been used to); this is a minor point though.
Overall: a good value on a high quality set of wheels.

I purchased these wheels as a replacement for the original steel wheels on my '73 Raleigh Grand Prix and am very pleased so far. I have about 300 miles on them and no problem with them staying true or anyhing else. They came exactly as Bikeman says in his video - 100% ready to go, including rubber rim strips already installed and the quick release mechanisms included. These wheels fit my bike perfectly, taking only minutes to install.

Alas my old MAVIC wheel set got trashed on a curb and my Arryas just won't true anymore - So this is the set that allowed me to get going again - I have bought three of these sets and all are working fine on a PR-10, UE-08, Austro-Daimler - Had to do a little minor truing after 100 miles of riding only - I also added a 1mm crank spacer before my thread on hubs to give just a little more clearance for the chain in case the chain slips off the hub and gets stuck between the wheel and the cog - I am very satisfied...
