I didn't really notice it until I went out west with them. Here in Michigan they were fine....I had to crank on them a bit, but not too bad (probably more than I should have had to though). However, out west half way down some of the steeps they would start loosening up...not a ratchet slip, but more like something was stretching. I expect things to settle in, but once they take a set that should be it. This wasn't the case. It was getting tiring...they had to go.
Maybe for a rider not pushing it very hard, they would be ok?
