I own these with hope pro evo hubs on both bikes. Mostly because I am often around 220 lbs. I tend to bend stock back wheels from jumping my bikes sometimes, but I have used the Salsa El Mariachi with no rear suspension in my usual manner for over a year and have not had to true the back wheel. So these are good.
Slightly slower than other options so if you are racing then get something faster (particularly if you are looking for downhill speed) and probably run rapid robs or racing ralphs or something instead of the ignitor and minion 2.3 tires I often use and enjoy (I am not racing anyone other than myself).
