Strengths:    Um, heavy? Okay, none.

Weaknesses:    Heavy as hell. It lasted all of three rides before the internals started grinding. Totally garbage, but functions.

Bottom Line:   
Only get this wheelset if you plan on upgrading very quickly. Yet again, Bontrager makes more low end garbage. I think only pros get the quality stuff and Bontrager works off of the publicity then sells garbage.

Strengths:    Even when Freehub boby is shot you can still ride it while you wait the 1 mo for a replacement

Weaknesses:    freehub body, Bontrager stock,

Bottom Line:   
The hub is crap. Ride it until it breaks then replace it. 1000 mi in and it is nearly seized. Also these things are on backorder from Bontrager for forever I guess. I am going to buy a real hub.

Strengths:    Strengths?

Weaknesses:    lockring, freehub or was that freehub, lockring...bearings

Bottom Line:   
Bad: As often as a singlespeed cog is changed the lockring is not durable.
Worse: The freehub...again durability, they do not last long 3 to 5 months tops.
Worst: You have to remove the axle and the bearing to replace the sh!#y freehub. After a couple of freehubs the bearing is junk! I guess that means the freehub is actually the worst thing.
