I decided to replace the wheels and freewheel on my 1977 Motobecane Super Mirage, and these seemed to fit the bill. It took a little stretching of the bike frame to get them in, and they work fine, as does the freewheel, also ordered from here. The one surprise I had was that there was no protective strip inside the wheel to go between the tube and the spoke nubs. However, they seemed very smooth, so I went ahead and installed them. So far, so good.

I ordered this set of wheels to take care of multiple issues on my 40-year-old Panasonic road bike (got tired to replacing spokes, dealing with gritty bearings, etc.). The wheels seem well-made and they're working very well for me. I bike every day and changing out the wheels has picked up a couple miles per hour and a couple extra miles without really trying. The price was right, the shipping was free, I'm happy. It was especially helpful that Bikemanforyou includes complete information on the axle length so it was easy to determine that they would be a perfect fit, and they come with new skewers and tube protector strips, which often are extras from other suppliers. Oh, and their customer service is excellent.

Good product, a little damage from poor packaging.

Excellent! Bikemanforu is great to deal with & his youtubes are very instructional and entertaining.
I would love to get up to NY and see his shop someday!

The wheels are great. I would recommend them to anyone with a 27" bike. I did have a small problem with one of my wheels. I called customer service and within 45 minutes I had a new wheel on the way. I will make all of my future online bike purchases from bike mad for you.

Slapped these wheels on with brand new knobby treadded tires and my 1986 Univega Mixte lloks and feels brand new. Hit the road on a 30 mile trip this past weekend (03/10/2014)and had a great time.

Firstly, was great to talk to the man himself.. Bikeman was great and laid it out, nice to deal with a buisnessman that wants your return buisness, and delivering honesty and quality is the formula ! You Can NOT beat this product for the price, in fact great quality for my old 27" Moto rebuild!

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...
