I have been eyeing these for my AM rig:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130360587442&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT

Are they what the seller claims?
Those are just like mine , ( they should have the spacers for QR, 20 and 25mm ft hubs), I have these on two enduros and have really beat the hell out of them , ------I cought a rock in my rear bombing DH and riped out 3 spokes and road it home and replaced spokes ( I keep spokes on hand because I am a moron )and nipples --re-trued and repaired dents and am still running them .

I really thought these wheels would not live a month where we ride , but I was wrong.
The only thing I do not like is the 12 degree enguagment on the freewheel hub, ------I hate all that dead space and it makes tech hack more difficult , but other than that they are fine .

Good wheels, I have liked. Front wheel might feel slightly flexy with very stiff fork like E150, but not bad.

It is possible to change DTSwiss 36 point star ratchet to rear hub, it is basicly a DT240.

It's also possible to replace stock end caps with DT 12mm thru bolt set.

I have these rims and they have held up great the whole time I've had them. Still spins true with no adjusting after 2 years of use.

You are right , and I had one of the DT 240 hubs stashed that had the quick engage ratchet and I can't find what I did with it :madman:
