    Strength:

    Light weight
    Great wheelbuild
    Feels agile
    handles well

    Weakness:

    Rim got dinged easily when hit
    Bearings are a tad rough

    This a great race wheelset. I opted for the heavier spokes and it has stayed true over the last three years. The bearings have broken in nicely and there is no play on the rear wheel.

    I am very happy about this purchase

    Strength:

    Light weight.

    Weakness:

    A little flexy and poor standard bearings.

    This wheelset came with the One Niner that I originally purchased from NinerBikes in the USA.

    I gave them a pretty hard time for six months and then changed the stock bearings for a set of Enduro bearings.

    The wheelset is light, and look good on the bike. I run WTB 2.3 Exiwolf tires front and rear. The bike [SIR 9] is set up as a rigid singlespeed, so the wheelset gets quite a pounding every day. I true the wheels fairly regularly, because I don't spare them at all..

    Given the fact that this is such a lightweight wheelset, they have held up remarkably well so far. They flex a bit and sometimes get a little wobbly, but a quick tension/adjustment with the spoke key usually is enough to set them straight.

    I had to get the rear re-dished recently after a particularly hard week of riding through very rocky trails flat out.

    Would I buy them again?

    No.

    I think that they are a little bit too flexy and light for a true cross country wheelset. If you only ride fairly smooth singletrack they are fine, but for rougher treatment, I would prefer something a bit stronger and stiffer.

    However, I really can't complain too much...these wheels have been pretty good considering the amount of abuse they get from me.

    I give them 4 for value, because they were so cheap from NinerBikes, but only 3 for overall, because they are a little weak for a true CC wheelset and the standard bearings are pretty awful.
