Strength:

A durable, great gravel grinder wheelset that can take 200 miles of abuse and stay true.

Weakness:

A little on the heavy side. Tires are a challenge to put on by hand, but doable.

I bought these after a cattle gate ripped up my my Shimano M20s, it was a last minute buy from Backcountry.Com for cheap. I am a Clydesdale at 6'2" 210# and a lot of light weight wheel sets are not made for that kind of weight and punishment. Hence alot of broken spokes on Eastons.
Well after 16 hours and 203 miles racing the Dirty Kanza 200, I would have to say, it was a great buy and I never thought about my wheels the whole ride. Except for a few pinch flats (my fault, under inflated tires) that caused me to find out that taking off and putting on tires were a little challenging. I never had to use tire irons putting them back on, just taking off.
