    Strengths:    Eyeletted for strength. Bright yellow ones matched my old bike, now need black ones. Very reasonable price.

    Weaknesses:    Not found any

    Bottom Line:   
    Despite snapping off the freehub within a month and then having to do engineering work to get the sealed bearings to seat properly in both hubs and a year of very hard riding the rims have held up fine. Chili rating for rims only -

    Strengths:    Double wall cross section with eyelets to take the spoke strain.

    Weaknesses:    Heavy insert at rim joint unbalances the wheel. Not the best at staying straight.

    Bottom Line:   
    The rims do their job but need frequent trueing. I have stripped them and rebuilt them in aeffort at keeping them straight. It is a good job they are run with disk brakes or they would have been changed for Mavic 317's by now.
