Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I bought the white lettered 6+ here about 3 years ago for $800! The black lettered ones had just come out. Since then, I have 6,000 miles on them.
Not one single issue, maintained through a bike shop only once.
I run attack/force on them- the HED technician said this was the fastest aero wheelset. They are 22 and 23mm, but on the 6+ rim, they are 27 mm wide.

They are smokin' fast. Easily add 10% to flat road speed. I'm mid 40s, and 190 lbs (so max rated),
ASCENTS: I can't climb like I used to, but I am still ok...
DESCENTS: I own every KOM locally , from 30 km HC runs to 500m declines. I have touched 61 mph on these wheels- on a 12% grade without turns stretched over a mile. Regularly I am over 50 mph...

CROSSWINDS: what crosswinds? I never get blown around. Maybe it's because I'm a heavier rider...

I can't imaging buying anything else...
