Strengths:    weight strength and all the stickers peel off easy, good quality hubs, and everything the last guy said

Weaknesses:    spokes hit the disc brake on the front rims with the Niner RDO fork. the dish is correct but they still hit

Bottom Line:   
would buy them again. they are super fast light as air and seem stronger enough to survive SS and an all ridged setup

Strengths:    Weight, Stiffness, Tubeless compatability, confidence in strength.
Stickers peel off easily enough and then the appearance is on par with what I like.
Sound from the freehub is audible, but not annoying.

Weaknesses:    None so far.

Bottom Line:   
For the price and consistent quality these wheels deliver it's amazing other companies havn't followed in Sun Ringle's footsteps. I mean BST rims, stans tape/valve stems, Eyeleted rims, and bomber hubs.
I really favor these rims since they have the Stans NOtubes licensed Bead Seat on the rim along with Eyelets on the rim. This isn't a deal breaker for some, but Stans rims are not offered in an Eyleted version. I prefer the extra strength especially when running them on a SS. Simple Yellow tape and valve stem had me riding tubless in no time. Super easy setup with a floor pump.
Cartridge bearings, super easy maintenance, GREAT customer service from Hayes/Ringle if you ever need it.
I run the Charger Experts on my 26" FS bike for the same reasons as stated here. They rock!
