Bought two sets of these and could not keep spokes from brea

    Comments about Vuelta Corsa Pro Road Wheelset:

    I bought one pair and had to return them because the spoke holes had burrs that were puncturing my inner tubes. When the replacement came they worked great then started to break spokes on a regular basis (I weigh 180 lbs). Spent more on spoke replacement than I did on the wheels. Bought a second set (shame on me) and this set also broke spokes. Again I spent more on wheel repairs than on the wheels and retired them to my 14 year old son who weighs 135 lbs who rode them for 4 months before breaking a rear spoke. We are done with these and will spend more dollars next time to get a better wheel.

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa Pro Road Wheelset:

      That's right– 15K! I've greased the freehub, kept spoke tension even, but they've never gone out of true. We're talking, bad roads, gravel, mountain bike trails– I've been hard on these wheels! I'm 185# and ride year round in northern Maine. Owned the HDs before– I can't say they were any tougher. To get two full, hard seasons out of them, at this price, makes them a no brainer for me. I'll be getting another set for next year.

      My only quibble– sometimes Vuelta's quality control slips– especially at the weld. Check them with a critical eye, and rely on Nashbar to take care of any problems.

      A Waste of Time and Money

      Comments about Vuelta Corsa Pro Road Wheelset:

      In December of last year I purchased the Vuelta Corsa Pro Road Wheelset. The front wheel has been great, but the rear was been nothing short of a nightmare. The first one had a frozen freewheel, and the replacement has broken numerous spokes. I now have more into the wheel for replacement spokes and re-truing (3x) than what I paid for the entire set. Moreover, now I'm told that I can't just return the rear wheel for partial credit- I have to return the set in order to any credit. Nashbar wouldn't do a partial return. *VERY FRUSTRATED*

        Comments about Vuelta Corsa Pro Road Wheelset:

        Was looking for a new wheel set that didn't come in costing more than my entire bike. Going with some of the great reviews these wheels got, I decided to take a chance. So far, so good and the price is exceptional. Caught a sale besides, so even better. Wheels were packaged great, true right out of the box and came complete with skewers and rim tape. Time will tell but seems worth the chance.

            I PUT THESE WHEELS ON A 15 YEAR OLD SPECIALIZED ROAD BIKE AND ADDED SPECIALIZED MONDO TIRES. THE RESULTS WERE SURPRISING. AFTER WHAT I WAS USE TO, IT WAS LIKE RIDING ON CUSHIONS. THESE WHEELS COMBINED WITH THE RIGHT TIRES WILL MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IF YOU ARE RIDING AN OLDER BIKE. THEY LOOK COOL TOO!

              I ride 4 or 5 times a week an average of 40 miles, mostly on paved trails and roads. These wheels replaced the original eqpt. on my bike and they are excellent performers. They were true right out of the box and have stayed that way for the first 800 miles I've ridden on them.

                  These wheels feel wonderful on my bike - lightweight and durable. A pair of these lasts me for at least two year and I log a lot of miles during the year. Plus they look great. I'll keep buying these wheels - I've never had a single problem and this is my fourth set in over 10 years - they last!
