        Comments about Shimano WH-RS81 C24-TL Road Wheelset:

        I purchased the RS81's to replace Mavic K-Elites. The Elites didn't last 20K before the rear wheel was done so I was very disappointed in them. The RS81's seem to be good solid wheels and I hope to get at least 30K out of them. Maybe I'm too hard on the manufacturers but at the prices they charge they need to be called to task. Ask me to review these wheels in about 24 months and you will get my real opinion.
