Strengths:    Light, Cheap

Weaknesses:    Spokes break easy

Bottom Line:   
I've broken 2 or 3 spokes since I got my bike with these wheels. Shop says its about time to get a new wheel...after only a year! I only weigh 160 and only huck 3 ft drops so nothing major. Last spoke broke just calmly pedaling uphill. At least they're cheap though, but spoke repairs have cost as much as the wheel!

Strengths:    -Fairly light

Weaknesses:    -Seems kinda weak

Bottom Line:   
I am a crosscountry racer, and I weight 138lbs. I don't push these rims to the limit, so they haven't given me any real problems. However, I have had to retrue them twice in the past year and I recently bent the front in a rock garden. Since I don't weigh much, I can imagine heavier riders having more problems with these rims.

Strengths:    None

Weaknesses:    Hare to keep tru, I mean these rims are so weak. I've had to straighten not only left to right wobbles, but even high spots on it. Crazy weak!

Bottom Line:   
Weak, weak, weak, and I am only 175ibs and a XC rider. I'm not doing any hucking or big drop ridding here.

Date Reviewed: April 3, 2010

Strengths:    Light.....

Weaknesses:    None to this point.

Bottom Line:   
This rim is on the front wheel of my bike. It is mated to a White Industries Venti 20mm TA hub with DT double butted spokes. I have a White Brothers IMV fork set at 80mm

Rim was built by Tom at my local bike shop. Is it the rim or the builder? All I know he built me an awesome wheel that has held up nicely after one year of riding. Took the wheel in once to get checked after riding it for few months. Wheel was fine.

Best testament I can give, I am gettin' another one for the rear. Of course, I will have Tom build it up!

Date Reviewed: October 21, 2009

Strengths:    I don't really know of any

Weaknesses:    Hard to keep true. Spokes broke easy

Bottom Line:   
These rims came on my bike. My front rim has been bent twice, once it was retrued the other was beyond repair. The back rim has been had spokes broken at two different times and has also need to be retrued. I am not a big guy, 5'11 180. Bottom line, I have far from impressed with these rims. Very dissapointed!
