Strengths:    strength, ease of build, eyelets,

Weaknesses:    none to mention

Bottom Line:   
I built this 700c,32-hole rim up with an XT hub and Wheelsmith DB 14 spokes, laced 3x. It built up pretty easy, trued and tensioned up predictably. Haven't had to do much touch up truing. What really impressed me was how it held up after a hard hit. I ran over one of those 5-inch concrete parking slabs in a dark parking lot. Didn't see it, no braking. Didn't faze the wheel a bit. I now have 6k miles on the wheel. Brake surface remains smooth and even.
