Strengths:    Not a single one, except a good trainer wheel in my basement.

Weaknesses:    Rims crack, spokes break, recalled once already, hubs may have cartridge bearings (1 good point) but the axles are weak.

Bottom Line:   
Ugly. They started out as a second set for my training bike and now reside permanently on my fixed trainer in the basement. The first set I had was recalled due to faulty Alex rims (cracked both my front and rear after 200 miles, just like the recall said). After the replacements, I decided to test them heavily for a few days to see if they "fixed" the issue. 3 broken spokes in 1 week on the non-drive rear and now the rear axle is cracked. Junk, pure junk. Go with Supergo, Jenson USA, Price Point, Cambria, or Nashbar decent closeouts (with REAL hubs and REAL rims). Generic is cheap, and so are these hoops.
