I had a set of singletracks that worked great all last season. Still have them, in fact. Looks more like you had a bad wheel build or cased a jump.

you are probly right i built the wheel myself (first one ever). and actually i over jumped the hit and landed flatt hard. but what gets me is the some wheel took some hard hits on an evean bigger drop to flat then the double?

I didn't mean any offense with that bad wheel build comment, but a wheel is only as strong as the build.

Did you ever retension it after you built it? That could have been the problem. Anyways, stuff can only take so much abuse. You just happened to hit the breaking point of that wheel with the last landing.

I have sun singletracks and while they arent the best rims available, they certainly arent bad either. They should work fine unless you are a clydsdale or extremely abusive rider

yeah I agree

They are ok, not the strongest, mine are a bit outta shape but they have done me ok. If you are dropping over about 6ft you might want to look at somethign a little stronger...
