Pros: These rims came on my Access XCL 29er and i havent had any problems with them at all. They have stayed somewhat true. Although i haven't trued at all, they do seem a little out of line. These rims can handle everything a weekend warrior can throw at them.
Recommendation: I would recommend to weekend warriors and XC guys.
Pros: - abuse able
- look nice on a bike
- they spin nice
Recommendation: I just picked up a project bike that has been abused like hell. The kid I got it from does a lot of down hill and man made features on single track. This bike has seen a ton of rough riding, but the hoops had only the slightest wobble in the back wheel. I'd say they're fairly sturdy :)
