    Strengths:    i have the 20" set and they came with an awesome atomic laboratories decal that went around the front wheel, but i took it off to run front brakes..... shouldve kept it...
    so looks are good... nipples hardly ever come loose and it always seems to stay straight. The tall side walls are good for any size break pad and leaves ample room to adjust.

    Weaknesses:    tall side walls allows huge dents... maybe it was my fault maybe it wasnt but they are everywhere. i usually ride between 40-50 psi for bmx street sessions and 35-40 for dirt jumping. these dents are even in the front! how did that happen? other than the dents... if you a real neat freak and like to clean every inch of your bike after a run (like me) these are a real hassle to clean on the inside... other than this they come in black.. and black rims arent as good for braking as chrome so i hear yet they still work pretty well

    Bottom Line:   
    the dents are all at the top like tip top of the rim where the bead of the tire hooks up.. so you can still adjust the pads lower to avoid these indents.. and if you want a wheel that stays true with little almost NO truing then get these. these are nice to look at and stay strong even with them dents

    Conti - MountainKing or TrailKing

    [B]What do you guys think? Which would be better suited for local XC riding. I live in Florida, so we don't have mountains but it is wet a lot and want something with good grip. [/B]Read More »

    Atomlab trailking sizing

    Just curious how this bike fits. Considering picking up a used 09 frame. It would be for me and my wife for our soon to be pump track. Just a little worried it would be too long for my wife who is 5' 5 Any shorter riders out there riding a trail king? Also ride reports would be appreciatedRead More »

Premium slim - 2 pins front and back and a pin left and right. - look awesome in general Kona Wah Wah - pins all over the place, look best for traction. All thes ... Read More »
