Strengths:    Good weight, good cost, seem strong so far

Weaknesses:    Mild flex but nothing too bad

Bottom Line:   
I've only been riding the wheels for a couple of months but so far have been very impressed expecially when considering the cost. They are lightweight, responsive, and so far are durable. We ride very rugged terrain around here and they are still true so I'm going ahead and giving them the thumbs up. If they crap in the next few months I'll add an addendum.

Strengths:    Front Wheel works great

Weaknesses:    Freehub does not last

Bottom Line:   
These wheels are pretty cheap and reasonably light, so I bought them last Winter. Built up my Salsa over the winter and rode these wheels all summer on crosscountry trails with a few drops.
In August, the freehub was making lots of strange noise, so I took it off and found out that the bearing was completely shot inside. I called Sun Ringle and they said it was a known problem that they have fixed on the newer models. So, they sent me a new freehub body for free and even rushed it since I had a race to ride in.

Good customer service, poor quality part, but the new one seems to be working fine.
