Strengths:    light, strong, smooth rolling, stiff

Weaknesses:    cost

Bottom Line:   

What can I say? They're light, strong, and zero maintenance. I can't think of one thing I'd want improved. I've had them about 4 years and never had a flat or had to true them, even despite some serious all-mountain riding. As far as I'm concerned they're the perfect mountain wheelset.

For UST in general, I recommend wiping some liquid latex along the bead during mounting to get a good seal and then pouring a couple ounces in the tire before inflating.
