Awesome wheels, but front wheel has several spokes bent. I think this due to fedex employees throwing the box and putting heavy stuff on it, because the box looked like it has been through hell! Either way is not a big deal I just take to my LBS so they can replace the spokes and get the wheels true!
Really great wheels so far. I am a Clydesdale (250lbs) and the are holding up very well over large roots, rocks and drops. These have great stiffness and they roll smooth and true out of the box. I got the all black set and they look pretty good too. I am currently running them with Kenda 2.1 tires (my old set), but since these have a 23mm internal width and can handle over a 2.4 tire, I will be upgrading to 2.2 in the rear and 2.3 in front. These are an excellent value for the price and built to take a beating!
I bought these for myself on my birthday, first because they were cost effective. They are stiff, but as a good thing, and fairly light. I thought that the sil/blk wouldn't match the colors on my bike, but they look like they were meant for it. But I still wish the black was the same price as the silver/black wheel-set. Bottom line is, the wheels are somewhat light, cost effective, and sturdy. Planning to buy for my dad's bike.
