Strengths:    Strong, Rigid, Roll very well, Good looks, Cartridge bearings make them easily converted to 9mm and 15mm Thru Axles on front. See below

Weaknesses:    Weight, included skewers aren't that great

Bottom Line:   
These are good wheels, especially when price is considered. These can be had for $120, shipped. They are strong, rigid, roll well and have a v-brake surface. This last point is important if you have an older bike.

They weigh approximately 2100g, which isn't great, but also isn't bad at all.They roll really well, so the weight doesn't make as much difference as you would think. Plus, it results in more strength, so I'm not going to complain.

I recently discovered that it is possible to convert the front wheel to 9mm Thru or even 15mm Thru axle. One must remove the original 6001 bearing and install 6902 bearings. Once this is accomplished, simply choose the Stan's ZTR 3.30 front cap of your choice (9mm/15mm). I just did this to convert to 9mm thru, at a total cost of $150 for the set.

I would recommend these to anyone looking for a good deal on a dependable wheelset.

Strengths:    Straight and true,
They smooth out the bumps in the road,
Rear wheel spins for 2:30 minutes and getting better..
I have spun the front - gone to the store and came back -- and the wheel is still moving.
I don't feel as if I have to grease any thing.
Just did a 64 mile ride. Wheels rode just as fresh as when I started. Less heat and friction.
Much better then factory at a low price!

Weaknesses:    Hmm, weight.
But then the lighter the wheel the better the hub should be otherwise spin will not be good. I've noticed that on road bikes. While I would catch and pass them I could easily go down the hill faster because of better wheel spin. And they were riding $3-6000 road bikes!

Bottom Line:   
All I have left to say is that there are few things that a consumer could buy where the benefit out weighs the cost. This is it!

> Strength
> Well-built from factory
> Sealed bearing

Weaknesses:    > Weight

Bottom Line:   
As it is said: you have price, weight and strength; pick two. Well, these wheels are cost effective and strong but a bit heavy. I'm 220lbs so this is not exactly a concern. I replaced a set of OEM Alex wheels with these and didn't notice a weight change, but the strength was a big improvement. On the Alex wheels, I could easily feel the flex on a fast bend or steep climb but no flex with these. The rim strips are decent and look able to support well.

These were my first 24H wheels so nothing to compare them too, but the spokes appear strong and the wheels (I have two sets) arrived true and solid. Sealed bearings a bonus and they look alright, too. Make sure to apply pressure around the decals after unpacking as the ends of mine were hanging off.

Strengths:    Durable,strong, good looking, and inexpensive

Weaknesses:    on the heavy side. But really, 1/2 pound on a value wheel set is not an issue.

Bottom Line:   
As a clyesdale rider I needed replace my rear wheel (why cant rocks be evenly spaced and in logical geometric order). I seen these in Ebay at Crosslake. I bid and won them for cheap. When they arrived, still in the shipping box from Vuelta, I put them on and headed out for a 50 mile ride. I was impressed. I have ridden these for 250 miles now and no issues have popped up. BTW, 1/2 pound is relatively 1/2 a bottle of water or 12 oz. or a pee break. Not an issue.

Strengths:    Affordable
Very stiff
Stay true
rugged rims
Shimano hubs
Great braking surface so far

Weaknesses:    Could be lighter

Bottom Line:   
I ride very light carbon wheels on my road bike, and I tend to be a weight-weenie. When I first looked to replace my MTB wheels (personal built 28H Campy Sthenos, double butted DT spokes, about 1850 gms) I wanted something a little more rugged at the expense of a little more weight. These wheels only set me back $89 (WOW) so I was a bit weary, but knowing a friend who uses Vuelta wheels, he had no negatives about them. They test around 2080 grams on my scale, so I took about a half pound hit.
So far I've put about 350 Northern Ca singletrack miles on them, and so far they're true and stiff. I use v-brakes, and the braking surface is very rugged and grippy. Hubs feel bomber and no-play.
If you dont mind some extra weight for your cross-country riding, I would recommend these for the weekend warrior!
