im giving 2 stars because of multiple reasons:
-they are very heavy
-it is very, very difficult to change tyres as there is little room for the tyre bead. this is with dual ply tyres, dont know how easy it is with single ply
-because it is difficult to change tyres, you need heavy duty tools rather than normal tyre levers. tools you probably wouldn't take with you on a trip so if you puncture, you're in deep s**t
-the "eliminator" idea of eliminating pinch flats by putting a hard plastic tube in the rim is an allright idea, just that it doesnt work very well, and you still puncture (quite often in my case)
-the valve on the inner tube needs to be relatively long to fit through the plastic "anti puncture tube" and the rim.
-strong but other than that, struggling to find any.
dont know about the hubs though.
but the rims aren't really that great
