Weakness:

None.

Good rim especially for the price.

Strength:

Cheap, tough, stays true, takes a beating

Weakness:

maybe weight? don't care much.

I run these on my dj and they take a beating. I've cased more landings than I'd like to admit and they handle my 200lbs coming down on them very nicely. Looking to lace some nicer spokes and hubs to them but will keep the rims.

Strength:

Stays true... until sidewall splits

Weakness:

Heavy, not durable

Sidewall split after only 2 years and about 6000 km.
And this was on the rear - I mostly use the front brake.

Strength:

Super strong wheel. Stays true!

Weakness:

None

My local LBS suggested this wheel set for me from the stock wheels on the bike I bought. I am 432 lbs and the wheels don't give me any problems! I probably have 100 miles on them so far! So if I can ride the bike an trails then you smaller guys can beat the hell out of them!

Strength:

Inexpensive, VERY solid, stay true, wide.

Weakness:

None

First of all.......you guys do not know how to change a tire it would appear. Tires go on just fine. I have put on 2 different style WTB's and Maxxis tires with minimal effort. I must be a genius. Second, these rims with XT hubs are just a steal for the $. Third, the wheels go round and round when the crank turns.

Strength:

Seems to be a solid product.

Weakness:

none yet

After I bought the rim from my local bike shop I looked at the reviews on it online. At first I was worried because some many people said it was a weak rim and
not worth buying. How ever I'm not a dedacated downhill'er, and I don't do spin tricks but I do catch my fair share air. The first day I took it out I Knuckeled a 10' gap (I know not that empressive) if the rim was going to bend that would have been the time it did not. I finished my day with repeted 8' drops and still the rim is true. If you bent this rim on your first time out well I guess your a mad man and I would guess you would probably bend any rim on the market. If you had problems changing your tire ask your wife/girlfriend for your b a l l s back because it's not that bad. Bottom line buy it you'll like it.

srbecker   Weekend Warrior [Jul 26, 2011]
Strength:

Very strong

Weakness:

Heavy, I dont like the machined sidewall for rim breaks (very ugly), very hard to get tires on to

Although they are very heavy, for the price I paid, $120 for the set, I have gotten my money's worth out of them. I am not a huge weight weenie as I weigh 195lbs myself so what is an extra couple of grams? I have ridden these rims on many trails that include drops of 3-5 feet, some to flat ground and they have remained true for 2 years running. After tightening the spokes during regular maintainence, they often make a faint clicking noise from rubbing together. Other than that, I loved these rims but have upgraded to a lighter yet stronger wheelset with nicer hubs, but have kept these as my road set (with road tires and separate discs) allowing me to quickly switch between sets for riding to work and around the streets.

CSC   Cross Country Rider [May 24, 2011]
Strength:

like others have said, this is a very durable rim. I've done 2ft drops on concrete over and over with these, and the keep on spinning. easier to seat tires on these than my old Alexrims

Weakness:

none so far. I don't mind the extra weight

If you are the average rider looking for a good quality, durable rim, buy these.
