    Strength:

    Super Strong. Absolutly bombproof. Smooth hubs, strong spokes, tough rim.

    Weakness:

    Weight, but it's not made to be light. (Buy a XXX lite)

    They take a lickin and keep on spinnin.

    Strength:

    Strong, Strong, Strong.

    Weakness:

    A little heavy, not all that pretty, but neither am I.

    I have over 5000 hard miles on these wheels and they have only had to be trued once. In fact it was just the back one. It was out of dish but still true. It resulted from a very cool looking crash.
    I upgraded the bearings to a set of Philwood bearings.

    Strength:

    Front wheel seems strong, wheels aren't TOO heavy

    Weakness:

    Rear free hub body seems to have trouble engaging. I took it apart and can't see anything wrong, but clicking noises seem to keep popping up.

    A good front wheel, but the rear hub is very questionable (I'll probably replace the rear wheel when I have the money).
