tenkekbest   Road Racer [Aug 15, 2010]
Strength:

Stiff, cheap, welded, aero, black, light

Weakness:

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

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.

Strength:

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.

Weakness:

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

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.
