Strengths:    light and very stiff

Weaknesses:    price but that one is obvious

Bottom Line:   
just built up a set with ind 9 classic hubs. came in at 1650grams on my lbs scale. shaved quite a bit of weight over my ind 9/arch set.
the lower weight is awesome but what i have really noticed is the stiffness of the rims vs my previous set. much more stiff, to the point that i actually feel the bike handles quicker and is more responsive

will report back in a few months as to the durability of the set, although i expect they will continue to be awesome in all regards. hard to say they are worth the $$ but they are definitely better than i expected so far

Enve 29'er carbon XC rims cosmetic question

These rims are fairly new and I noticed some slight lines around and near the ridge of the spoke holes. Here's an attached image of what I'm seeing. I'll be contacting Enve to see if this normal or not, but in the meantime I thought I would ask the MTBR folks :). Looking at their process I could se ... Read More »
