Very carefully bud. Not trued them yet, but will take my time, it's all about the feel, so I've been told.

Never ridden a pair before, but they feel just as strong as a standed wheel. The rest of the bike is far from completion so will be awhile before they get tested.

Seen them in the flesh and they are the nuts, pictures dont do them justice. They are strong wheels when trued as I know many racers that used them in the day with no failures. There not a waste of good hubs, this build compliments trick componants of the day unlike modern mass made toot. The rest of the build parts for this bike are truely stunning :D
