Strengths:    Very strong rim, I-Beam support, unbendium bulge, GBS, looks great, price

Weaknesses:    For weight weenies it could be weight, nothing other than that so far

Bottom Line:   
I use it for front wheel.
It did take some abuse and has seen some action, but nothing too excessive. With DT Swiss 340 hubs and DT Swiss Alpine 3 spokes it's still true and there's no actual need for truing...
Great rim for the money, will definitely buy again.

Date Reviewed: June 18, 2008

Strengths:    Nice looks, not too heavy & strong, really strong!

Weaknesses:    None at the moment.

Bottom Line:   
So far so good. I use my STP for all-mountain riding, sometimes do some 'light' dirt jump & 'light' downhill, and the rims stay true. I never touch the rims except for cleaning it.

WTB LaserDisc FR, UST?
