I was looking at spinnergy rev-x but ive heard they can loose tension and catastrophically fail, should they be avoided? I would be buying them used (obveously) so is it more of a concern? im 121LBS so im not a huge rider....

thanks

max

EDIT: solved, thanks :D

& how are hed cx wheels, i just bought some 700c, i cant seem to find any info on them

i paid 250, is that a bad price?
