Strengths:    these came on my 2015 Raleigh RXC Disc. With one season of cyclocross in the books plus many training rides I still have had NO problems with either wheel. the spin smoothly and stay true.

Weaknesses:    for mountain bike wheels they are light but for cyclocross they are only reasonable.

Bottom Line:   
These wheels have had at least 400 miles on the road and a season of cross, MUDDY cross. For the price you can't go wrong in my opinion. They came with tubes but I switched to Tubeless with zero problems. the hubs are 15/100 and 12/142 front and rear respectively.

Strengths:    Tubeless set-up is easy. Lightweight for the price. Look good.

Weaknesses:    Rear hub slips, won't engage.

Bottom Line:   
This wheelset came with my Niner Jet 9 Carbon. My rear hub stopped engaging after 40 days. I took the hub apart per American Classic's directions on their website. Found some of the teeth on the cassette body to be stripped. Also, the cam plate is somehow not engaging the pawls into the teeth. I cleaned out some metal shaving that may have been interfering with the cam plate, cleaned everything, re-greased and put it all back together. It is re-engaging for the most part, but still misses. I am going to call American Classic when they re-open after the New Year. Hopefully they will send me a rebuild kit. I will update this review to let you all know how the customer service goes.

For now, I am using the rear wheel from my single speed. It is an XT hub laced to a WTB i23 rim. It will be a bit heavier, but it will last!
