if you are getting new rims, i would first upgrade the hubs, if not both the rims and the hubs at the same time, the joytech hubs are really cheap quality, although i have not been having any problems dropping and jumping on the rear one, but the front one already has bad bearings and will not roll smoothly, with alot of drag

EDIT: oops i read the post wrong

i dont know the weigh, but i have joy-techs with Alex DH20s and they are pretty light, not heavy enough to activate the scale, so, im guessing less than 2 lbs for the front wheel

but why would anyone run DitchWitches on Joytechs?

I run my stock wheelset. Only problem I've had is I snapped the front axle... not the skewer but the Al axle inside the front hub. Warranty replacement with chromoly by the shop and smooth as ever ever since then.

I think they're allright. I've run them for 2 seasons. they're really good if you arent a really sloppy rider, and if you fall all the time. I've taken some really hard falls when running ditchwich, never bent or anything.
