    I can't say enough great things about the cosmos. They are bombproof and with the low spoke tension ride really well. I can't recommend any other wheel for training. I'd much rather have them over the Chorus hubs/Open pros I had, and they were great wheels in their own right.

    I second that emotion on the Cosmos

    I'm on my second pair of Cosmos. I can afford a hi-zoot wheelset, but just can't get myself to drop $800 on one. My Cosmos, both pairs, have rolled thousands of miles with zero maintenance. Great cartridge bearings, still spin glassy smooth. No brake pad rub on sprints or high speed descents like my friend's Rolfs. No spoke pullout like another friend's Ksyrium SL's. No annoying, clacky freewheel like my girlfriend's Spinergys. I'm 190, ride rough country roads, bunny hop curbs and the occaisional pothole.
