    I built this rim up for a rear wheel on my Stumpie FSR. Most of the riding I do is tech XC, but occasionally it sees some light FR situations. So far, this rim has held up without a hitch. It stays true...period. I've taken it off smaller drops (around 4') with no issues. Perhaps this is a little beefy for a XC setup, and maybe a little heavy as well, but I like strong and low maintenance. This rim has fit the bill nicely! I'm looking for a second now to build a front wheel.

    Strength:

    Good balance of width, weight and strength. Welded joint.

    Weakness:

    None

    Highly recommended for 6" steamers. 21mm innner width gives better profile than 819 and the rims have held up to nearly 3 years abuse with barely a whimper, so much so that I'll probably transfer them to my new frame and sell off the DT E540 rims it comes with...

    Strength:

    -Nice and light, but also strong
    -builds up wonderfully
    -a fairly flat inner rim surface for easy tubeless tape application (if you use tape)
    -very little lateral flex
    -wide enough for a buncha' tires
    -a reliable WELDED joint
    -Cheap *A LOT of quality for $60USD*
    -they look good as well

    Weakness:

    -the large holes for nipple starters (inner rim side) kind of worry me, but i have seen no problems yet, and i dont expect to
    -the sticker scratches easily, i guess

    first of all, let me just say that i spent 10 full minutes trying to think of weaknesses. these rims are that great. i havent spent too much time on them, but nobody has. i plan to give a better review later. these rims are new, but they are good, surviving various light downhill runs, freerides, uphills, and everything in between. i wouldnt recommend these for downhill RACING, but for recreational downhill, these rims will last more than an all-mountain rim should. it builds up beautifully, having a glass-like look when spun for the first time, and weigh very little (i would give you the weight of the built-up wheel, but i dont have my scale). also, the inner surface is very easy to mount tubeless tapes on. it is flat and has little creases. the only weakness i could find was that the holes inside the rims are a little big, but this doesnt worry me in the slightest. and for $60USD, these have a great price tag to go along.

    bottom line? Get Them.
