Strengths:    This rim is very economical, only 800 gms and is available in 36 and 32 spoke versions. I have used it on 26x 3.5 in and 4.0 in wide tires. The 3.5 in wide speedster tires work very will on this rim. Since it does not have a bunch of lightening holes like a marge lite or northpaw rim I am expecting it is also very strong.

Weaknesses:    Your fat tires will be narrower when mounted on this rim. My Devist8er 26x 4.0 tires are only 3.4 in wide when mounted on these 42 mm rims. The wider tires also take on a more rounded shape when mounted on these narrower rims.

Bottom Line:   
Overall I like the rim for its value and availability in 36 spoke versions. I am not sure if I like the reduced width that I get for 4.0 inch wide tires though. I need to do some riding on sand to see how they roll.
