Strengths:    strong, can take a lot heaver rider than promoted 200 lb

Weaknesses:    scratches appear quickly

Bottom Line:   
Some are saying that these are easily bent, but I dont see this problem here. I assume it mostly depends on how well are spokes added and maintained. I am almoust 250lb (which is 50 over recomended weight) and in last days did a lot of ~3 feet drops, and guess what - they haven't bent even a little bit.

Of course they are not high end product - but these are decent rims for those who dont have a thousand dollars to spend

Strengths:    Light ,strong and cheap price

Weaknesses:    Not a stiff rim for racing.

Bottom Line:   
If u are tight on budget and want to get a light and strong rim. Get this no doubt, I am a heavy rider but mainly do road riding. No problem at all as it is strong and stay true but if u get a high end hub and lace to this cheap rim. Yr hub potential will not be maximise.

Cos it is not stiff at all. Sleeve joint and what do u expect? Strongly recommend lacing to med and low end hub only.
