Submitted by SUX Vision R40 Rider a Commuter

Date Reviewed: September 13, 2010

Strengths:    Long lasting, semi aero, strong, durable and relable.

Weaknesses:    None, except maybe not lasting beyond 9 years before needing to be replaced.

Bottom Line:   
For the last 9 years my front 20" Alex DA16 has done a great job at keeping my bike stable, performing well when cornering and handeling bumps of what ever hard surface I ride on. Today, 09/13/2010, after over 10,000 miles, the rim has finally failed. There is a crack in the surface of the rim where the brake makes contact. The wall of the rim has been worn down and is really thin and needs to be replaced.
