    Strengths:    very strong, rigid, tires never wobble, for how long i have had them and abused the crap out of them i never had any problems and never had to respoke them or tune them.

    Weaknesses:    ummm. they aren't disc brake compatible which sucks because i want disc brakes but i love these rims

    Bottom Line:   
    these are excellent rims i do really big jumps constantly all day and land on flat ground on hard dirt so they have to take alot of impact i think everything else on my bike will break before these rims ialso do some cross country and alot of times i run into trees at high speeds and these rims never break no matter how big of a jump i hit there excellent for everything there There BEASTS

    Strengths:    This wheel came on my (used) '95 Trek 7000. I have ridden them for >2 years 3-4 times/wk. These wheels have been simply great. With all my riding I have done only only very minor 1-2 adjustments of single spokes to maintain truenss. No 'hop' whatsoever has developed. The bearings finally died last week. Wish I could get same bearings/axel but looks like too much trouble. So I am heading out to the market hoping to find value like these to replace these GREAT VALUE WHEELS!!!

    Weaknesses:    none to report in my 2-3 years riding this regularly

    Bottom Line:   
    Great utility. trust them.

    Strengths:    Strong, and not heavy. Haven't had it readjusted yet. I have the bike for about a year now, with technical trail riding with some jumps.

    Weaknesses:    Can't find any really

    Bottom Line:   
    Well, these rims are strong. Really. I only weigh around 145, but trail riding, jumping off stuff, going over rocks and doing technical trails, these rims still hold. No tire wobbling here. These rims are good. But I guess if you weigh 200 pounds and doing extreme downhills with ridiculous jumps, then I don't know.

    Strengths:    LARGE BRAKE SURFACES, REINFORCED EYELETS, ASYMETRICAL DESIGN

    Weaknesses:    CAN'T FIND ANY

    Bottom Line:   
    MY BIKE FEELS LIKE A MACHINE, NOT JUST SOME TINNY ALUMINUM TOY. THESE RIMS ADD TO THE RIGID FEEL AND THAT MAKES ME WANT TO GO FASTER. FOR THE MONEY THEY ARE A STEAL. I GIVE BONTRAGER A FIVE STAR RATING HERE.
