Strengths:    Rims and spokes seem solid, surprisingly so considering the hubs (see weakness)

Weaknesses:    First off, you'll not win any weight weenie contests, but at this level that's not really an issue.
Rear hub interface to the freehub and the freehub body are terrible

Bottom Line:   
3 failures in 2 years and nearly identical, the first one was under warranty. The freehub body ovalizes from stress and what appears to be very lax tolerances and the aluminum shears or fractures in the thin areas machined out near the pawls once it goes out of round.
