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.

2.75" x 450 spring. Are they are the same quality?

I have a 2.75" x 450 spring on my FOX DHX 3.0 but I need a heavier spring rate. I will likely buy a 500 or 550 (I am 210lbs). Are all springs created equal in terms of travel, weight and quality or are same brands better than others? How much weight can be saved going with a Titanium 2.75 x 50 ... Read More »

Where can I find a 2.0 x 450 lb. Titanium Spring?

I am about to order a new DHX 5.0 coil shock with a 400lb. spring for $180, but I need a 450 or 500 lb. spring. I was thinking since I already have to replace the spring, that I would try to find a titanium spring (preferably used) to fit the 7.5 x 2.0 shock but I can't find one anywhere. Does any ...
