Strength:

Reasonable all round quality for the price

Weakness:

Maintenance...spokes snap!! .

The weakness with this wheelset seems to be the spokes. A 1 foot drop should be well within the capabilities of a set of AM wheels like this. The driveside spokes keep snapping at the nipple end. This is not good and does not inspire confidence. The other thing is that they require trueing on a regular basis....or at least the rear does.

Strength:

This thing is bulletproof... okay maybe not. getting shot at while biking probably wouldn't be fun for the rider. it would definetly get your heartrate up tho. ooh yeah where were we. um yeah, its pretty and red(borders on the edge of pinkness when dirty with trail dust). very strong.

Weakness:

NONE!

These wheels are damn fantastic. as an xc rider, i've been down runs that trail bike users would think twice about. not once have they shown any sign of bend or break or torquing. they're amazing, cheap, pretty. Buy them

Strength:

Smooth and spin forever cartridge bearings, good engagement, good looks and a good price. Strong wheelset for xc/trail use.

Weakness:

broke 4 spokes on the drive side of the rear wheel in one year. Front wheel has been true from day one.

Great wheelset for the price. good looks and great performance but it seems like some have had problems with rear drive side spokes breaking. I will relace the rear wheel and it will be better than new.

Strength:

Light, Stiff, fast, spin all day, plus the awesome Ringle buzz when I coast. Standard spoke setup is nice for maintenance

Weakness:

Anodized finish on hubs (Bright red) doesn't match rims (kind of purplish)

Haven't put too many miles on them yet, but so far these are awesome.

Strength:

Tough rim, engagement,smooth spinning hubs, look great

Weakness:

Spokes

This wheel set is pretty tough although the spokes are not.I had to have all the rear drive side spokes replaced, they kept breaking at the hub. I am a big guy 260# so I guess I put a little more stress on equipment than others. At my size I have a fondness for going down hill and with my setup I don't shy away from rocks and roots so these wheels have held up very well.I do have to take away 1 chili for the spoke replacement but that is it.

Strength:

lightweight, stiff, instant engagement on rear hub, mounts wire bead tires well, spin forEVER!

Weakness:

none so far

These wheels are awesome! The hubs spin like friction has been dis-invented, engagement when pedaling is INSTANT, and they have yet to wobble in the slightest! 3 weeks now, and I have missed one day of commuting in the winter rough. If you make allowances for these rims like I had to do with my old assortment of Deore disc combo's, you'll mess up a bunnyhop -- just fly 'em! These (and a new h-bar) took 1-1/2 pounds off my bike, feels like 5 or more!
