Anyone have any experience with these rims. Never have used a WTB rim/wheel. These bad boys are pretty light (500g) for a trail/all-mtn. rim. Any Feedback would be appreciated even if it is nothing but negative.
I had a flyweight set built up earlier this year. Nice weight, exellent bead lock, that's about it for the good. The rim itself was flexy to the touch, the eyelets gapped away from the rim while tensioning, the front wheel went potato chip shaped sometime during a 2 min. run; can't even remember what happened to the rear... Got about 10 days of riding out of them. Maybe 719D, 721, 5.1?
I found those to be a bitch to get a tire to bead on properly. Always had to over-inflate the tire or it would ride wonky. My front rim also did a near-taco after barely tapping into a stump. Otherwise, they seemed like a great singletrack-type rim.
