They're legit. Can vouch for one of owners (in fact, he's a Vorber) :)

I like how they are all like O HAY OUR BIKES ARENT LIGHT AND FANCY AND BLAH BLAH BLAH but then mention that the fixie has 'Aero' wheels.

I shouldn't be a trolling ballbag. Normal bikes for normal people are cool. :thumbsup:

Yay for fully-enclosed chainguard and for the tidy skirtguard and front basket.
The ladies' bike won't blow away since everything but the rims is pure steelium, and the non-QR hubs give more scope for interaction with rescueing chaps.

Aero rims are sensible for the flippy. They are stronger for curbs, and for sideways forces from skids.
