Strengths:    Stiff, cheap, welded, aero, black, light

Weaknesses:    None so far, other than a bit harsh, but I think that is just the profile, number of spokes and perhaps radial lacing.

Bottom Line:   
Good looking (peeled off all stickers), aero, fairly light and stiff, built up easily and true (radial 24h), welded seam, no hop.

I was surprised at how rigid this wheel was compared to a 3x Open Pro and radial Ritchey Aero. It has a higher profile. Had to let some air out to make the ride more comfortable.

Strengths:    Looks good when polished.
Can get in low spoke count.
Strong so far, as I've had no problems.
True and round after around 2000 miles.

Weaknesses:    Might not the stiffest rim, but I have a 20 hole version.

Bottom Line:   
Light weight rim with many drilling patterns.

I have a 20 hole version of this rim that I polished to a mirror shine and built it to a American Classic Micro 58 hub also polished. Laced with DT Swiss Revolution spokes and gold aluminum nipples.

Bike Setup:   This wheel is usually on a fixed gear and gets city street abuse. I also put it on my road bike some times, so it gets a lot of miles too.
