Submitted by Frank Daugherty a Cross Country Rider from Huntington Beach CA

Date Reviewed: October 13, 2004

Strengths:    Really light weight, zero offset on the rear wheel,

Weaknesses:    Not sure there are any

Bottom Line:   
Bought these for the weight (and the price) and really scored. Front is radial laced (the flange is designed to take it) they have stayed absolutely true after more than 3000 miles on the street. Don't laugh, I jump curbs, run down stairs, hop stuff to keep me from boredom. Never a problem. Not sure how they'd do in the dirt, but I haven't babied them. Oh yeah, they look really good too. The value rating is based on what I paid. They list price is a tad steep.

Strengths:    strong, stiff

Weaknesses:    none yet

Bottom Line:   
I've had the same rims for about four years now. While I try to be light on the pedals, they still get worked most every ride & all they've ever needed was a light truing. Best rims you can find for the money.

Date Reviewed: August 17, 2000

Strengths:    Strong, lite, looks,

Weaknesses:    uuuuuuuuhhhhhhhhh I could built them 100 grams lighter

Bottom Line:   
these are the best wheels I have evey built, made me a believer in ritchey products. trued twice 3 months ago and never again total weight is about 1900 grams with xt cassette. If 200 pound riders cant break these then my 135 lbs butt can do a damn thing to them. Deffinitly a good buy
also take a look with ritcheys other wcs products as well

Ritchey Rock WCS rims?

I bought this nice wheel, a front only unfortunately, but I'd like to make it a pair. I'd never come across the Rock WCS rim before, but I'm assuming that it's decent, else why would someone have laced it to a titanium Hope hub? Can anyone date it for me, or comment on its quality?[IMG]http://i32.ph ... Read More »
