- they look cool on a bike
- they are cheap
- warp very easy
- do not take abuse well at all
I am completely unimpressed by these rims. The first time they were used they were ridden on about 3 miles of smooth groomed dirt rails trail about a mile of snowmobile double track and 2 miles of beginner single track and the back wheel already needs to be trued. Upgrade to some WTB Dual Duty rims, you wont be sorry!

Durable overall, match the bike
Bend easily, don't stay straight, rim surface not wide enough for proper brake pads
Don't get these rims. I bought a Kenda rim that looks the same, but has lasted three times longer than these have without bending or needing to be trued. The Kenda wheel also has more even and less jerky braking without wallowing in the edge of the wheel unlike the trek wheels.
