Strength:

Rims are very strong, no problem mounting Kenda Nevegal 2.5 wire beads with a bit of soaped water. Both wheels when new spun exceptionally smooth and engagement seemed quick.

Weakness:

Jumping Flea rear hub appears to have same bearing issues as its siblings(see mtbr reviews). Bearings making noise and clinching in freewheel mode after only a few months usage. I'm pretty much a clyde at ~225 do occasional DH but mostly rough XC with occasional drops, nothing extreme though.

Be aware that Sun's Flea hubs have a checkered past. Rest of wheelset seems top notch. No problems with front hub so far.

Similar Products Used: Stock wheelset which had spoke popping issues in the rear, fixed with name brand DTs but bearings on way out so got this new wheelset.

Weakness:

hard to tire up and remove tire had to buy a moto tire iron bent the parktools plastic irons maybe a little heavy

I was looking at the trasition wheels based on the reviews but they do not build a 150 rear so I asked around and when I saw these for 300 shipped no tax Bam bought them like I said a little heavy but so am I!

Strength:

rim(sun mtx) is durable and stylish, hub engagement is comforatable and hubs spin very smoothely, they give you a lot of speed!

Weakness:

none yet!

this is a great wheel for dirtjumping and street, im sure its great for downhill too, but i dont downhill. I have the rear 12mm thru hub set up with an azonic momentum 12mm-10mm conversion axle and it works great. These are the best wheels i have used yet!
