    No love for Vision ?

    Iím building my new Colnago C60 and I have been eyeing Vision Merton 40s for a long time. They donít seem to be that popular here in Italy tho,like my mechanic tells me to steer clear from them. Why ? Reviews are great...

    They were spec'd as OEM wheels (Metron 40 LTD) on some Treks. Nothing but problems w/ the freehub. Multiple warranty freehubs and replacement wheels. Still had problems. Wheels were warranteed again and upgraded to Metron 40SL. 2 pair of those have had problems w/ brake track inconsistencies right out of the box. I cannot not advise strongly enough to steer clear of these wheels. They can't even warranty wheels right now because they don't have any in stock. I've got 2 very pissed off customers because of this.
    I work for some bike racers
    I've got some bikes, some guns,
    and a bunch of skateboards
