How durable are these? How often do you guys true them? It loooks like i have to remove the tire to true. Is it a huge pain in the ass? I am 150lbs.
I can get them real cheap, and was wondering what to expect.
The other reviews don't say anthing about truing.
Thanks

No truing.

Yes you do have to remove the tire and rim strip. I have about 7500 on mine and they never have had to be trued. I do have the Rolf truing tool should I need it. The only down side of these wheels are you can get a bit of pulsing from the front rim and since the brake surfaces are brushed and not machined they do not brake as well as a rim with a machned brake surface. The braking is exceptable but if you have been riding rims with machined brake surfaces you will notice the difference.
