Strengths:    comfortable, strong, decent quality.

Weaknesses:    weight

Bottom Line:   
this rim is 480g, with wide tires and spokes it becomes heavy, but its not for racing.
It'd make a touring rim. It has slight flex/comfort built in, similar to MA3/ Open Sport, strong enough for most people. but not very stiff. Slightly stiffer than MA3/ Open Sport.

Strengths:    Well priced. Good looking,very strong rim! Best for Touring and commuting.

Weaknesses:    Hard to get in 36 hole silver. A little heavy.

Bottom Line:   
Had these laced to 36 hole Phil Woods. Bombproof!. I took a hit on a hidden pothole on a rainy fast descent during a Metric Century the other day that about threw me off the bike. Checked the true after the ride. Didn't even need to touch it up!
