Strengths:    Rims are Fantastic

Weaknesses:    The hubs are a joke!

Bottom Line:   
I had 2 combat front hubs and destroyed them back to back with VERY light dirt jumping. The rims are good but I'm gonna give this a bad rating due to the hubs.

Strengths:    Looks cool, standard design. Basically your standard 24" wheel. Comes in 26" too.

Weaknesses:    Can't seem to keep them true....maybe they're not broken in all the way. Spokes are really creaking.

Bottom Line:   
Seems to me that 24" wheels are getting tougher and tougher to come by.

I bought this wheel to match my front; it's a 36h on the Nashbar SS rear hub. I would've gone with a better rim had I not been matching this to my front wheel.

These wheels come from Ison Distribution, a UK distributor. You cannot buy these wheels direct, you have to go through your LBS who gets them from BTI. Beyond Bikes carries them I think, but they will usually have to get them from BTI too, so may as well go to your LBS. All in all, I waited 3 weeks for rim/spokes/and hub to arrive and spent $150. I should have just gotten something American. Live and learn.
