Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Owned these from new on a 2007 Giant Trance. Never needed truing. I'm 95kg and ride reasonably fast (though I don't jump high!). @ Nik: max pressure for these rims is 69psi on a 1.9" tyre. If you run higher pressures and small tyres on rims that aren't designed for them, you're asking for trouble : ).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous This is the 2nd one of these I have had, the first failed due to rim wear after commuting on the bike every day for about 6 years. I was surprised how easy it was to fit, never having built a wheel before, but my newly fitted rim runs pretty true.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Anonymous Reliable enough rim. Had one on my commute bike (which due to the state of the roads I peddle to work on meant it was probably getting as much of a hammering as if it were being ridden off road on my full-susser) and never needed trueing.
However, the braking surfaces wore out suprisingly quickly (8/9 thousand miles)compared to my cheap front wheel to the point were the rim blew with a 1 3/4" slicks on at about 85 psi. Don't know if this means these have a poor life expectancy, or my front rims (cheap thing that came on my bike) have an excellent life expectancy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Just finished building mine (wheels) and I'm impressed by the quality and price of these rims - I was expecting lower quality for this money! At the CRC price you really can't go wrong with these - if you're looking for a 17mm All-mountain rim; look no further - simply the best rim available for £20.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Had a several pairs of these rims now. They are super light, super value and super fast. I've run them with tires from 1.3" to 2.1" and they always look and feel good! I can't see the point in spending any more on rims for XC and commuting. Although I must admit, I've also had problems getting tyres on these rims and not others (same tyres, different rims).
