I have heard 1st hand from my friend that his Fikse crack at the spoke this past summer. The wheel was 1-2 years old. Another friend had similar crack on his Forgeline. Don't know the age though. Both had been used on track (ok - we are all trackies ).

Having said that, I have also heard someone bent his new Kinesis from hitting too much turtle... rumor has it that the latest Kinesis used 5000 series aluminum instead of T6061.

All these kinda told me that they might all crack. And based on comments from many, I am not sure if there is significant quality difference between these ones.

FWIW - I have been using a set of Kinesis for the last 4-5 years, and am getting a set of Kodiak (from Jeff). I was told it will be ~8 weeks lead time.
