I bought a set of these back in Feb of this year. Used them for about 3 months as my main training wheel. They were very good wheels for the price I paid ($150) and only had them trued twice. I would not consider them to be a very long lasting wheelset but I think they would be fine for lighter training. Since I am more of a Clydesdale, I did feel these wheels to be a little flexing especially when you stand up on steeper climbs. Later I bought a set of Mavic Krysium SL Premium as my main wheels and made the Vuelta's my backup set. The Mavic's are not as aero as the Vuelta's but still a solidly built wheel. I have not had the SL's trued yet and I have put over 500 miles on them already. I am going to turn the Vuelta's to tubeless and test out the ride quality as an experiment this spring. Good luck.
