lewvsalwrote a review of Mercury Wheels M5 Clincher Wheelset on June 13, 2018
Familiarity: I've used it several times
These are my first carbon wheels and I was nervous to make the jump mostly due to fears of worse brake power. Those fears are squashed for me. These stop as good if not better than my aluminum brake track wheels. I didn’t have any issues with brake squeal and I’m a terrible mechanic.
The wheels feel very smooth when rolling. Feel stiff when climbing. And feel strong to support me at 185lbs
The stickers were not glasses in so I removed and now the wheel/bike combo is black AF.
Overall, I’m happy I made the jump
