Strengths:    Double walled and eyelets are the ultimate durability feature that a rim should have. Light rims for the tanks that they are.

Weaknesses:    Have work my way through the machined braking surface from the long over heating descents of the Canadian Rockies and Cabot Trail. Maybe the ceramic finished option might be good if you’re going to try this type of stuff.

Bottom Line:   
Bought these rims and had them mounted with DT Swiss spokes for trainers and cross continental tour. These were ridden in all weather conditions, from highways to very rough surfacing, right down to gravel road and endured very hard climbs and high speed descents with not so much as a hit of wanting to give out.

Strengths:    you can beat these wheels up and never feel unstable. period. i have riden a pair of these down mtns and they are like on rails!

Weaknesses:    just, the flexion. but what would you rather have, wheels that flex with you or wheels that have the spokes pop out and scare the living heck out of you???

Bottom Line:   
yes, they flex...but have never popped a smoke or had any issues at al with these rims. PERIOD. there will always be a give and take with weight and strength and stiffness etc etc....for any of you larger- say, 300lb riders out there...you will find this a nice investment, especially with how inexpensive they are going for these days!!!

Mavic Open Pro rear wheel with Shimano Ultegra 6800 hub

I am looking for a decent rear wheel for my bike. I currently have a Fulcrum 5 series on it and I keep throwing it out of tru. I am 6'0" and 230 pounds. I was looking at this rim as it is 32 spoke and it should hold up better than the 20 spoke one I have now I would think. I know that this (Mav ... Read More »

www.texascyclesport.com - open pro chris king r45 $600

$600 for a R45 chris king/open pro wheelset. Is that a good deal? Also, is texascyclesport a legit site/has good reviews? Are 11-spd R45 hub compatible with 10 speed drivetrain? I don't see myself going to 11 speed in the near future. Thanks!Read More »

Belgium vs. Open Pro SUP

Hey Bike People! I'm having a set of HED Belgiums built up (already got the front, ordering the rear now) and love them. I also have a set of Mavic Open Pro SUP UB Control rims from '02 that are brand new. I'm either going to sell those or build them up. I am asking the collective consciousness ... Read More »
