    Thanks for the comment, do you think they are light or are in the heavy side ?

    I had a set on my Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Comp for about 3 weeks. I really did not like them - way too flexy for my tastes. I'm about 210-215 pounds ready to go and ride fairly aggressively. I could really feel the rear rim twisting when I got on the pedals hard coming out of slower corners. I like doing ~ 4 foot drops, and they didn't seem to have the strength to stand up to that type of use. Might be OK for general XC riding, but that's not what I ride.

    I went with a set of Stan's Arch 32 hole MK3 rims and I'm much happier. Big change from the 24 hole Mavics.
