Great wheelset09/02/2022 ByChuck W. I received my 2nd set of A431TwoX wheels last week and have 1 ride and 1 crit race on this new set. These are great wheels that arrive perfectly true and I can attest that they will stay that way for a very long time. I put over 11k miles on my prior set of A431TwoX wheels before an unfortunate scrape as I came across the finish line of a Tuesday night crit race and got squeezed between two other riders and my front wheel rubbed into the rear skewer of the bike on my right and broke two spokes and yanked a third spoke and nipple out of the the rim, rendering the rim unrepairable. Before this, no spokes had ever broken on the front wheel and the wheel remained true and smooth throughout its life until then. These were the Sapim CX-ray spokes, which are fantastic. On two separate occasions, one spoke broke on the non-drive side of the rear wheel, which I replaced myself. This will happen given enough miles. Just as John said, the non-drive rear spokes are going to be the most likely to eventually break at some point. I use these wheels for all of my everyday training and for all of my Tuesday night criit races (I use my Zipp 404 wheels for the big Sunday So Cal crit races) and I have won many races on these wheels! These are truly one set of “do it all” road wheels that are light enough for climbing and stiff enough and aero enough for crit racing. I put out about 1,200 watts when sprinting and these wheels spin up better than my Zipp 404s because they are so light (but a little less aero than the Zipp). This time around, I purchased the 2-year wheel protection plan just in case anything unfortunate happens again to either wheel. These wheels out perform anything out there for the money. They are beautiful hand-made wheels. Don’t hesitate to pick up a set of these wheels for a wheel set that can truly do it all”.
