    I've bought this. It came from UK and they charged me some taxes. I'm in USA. So it ended up being 20 bucks more.
    The conversion to Stans was a big pain, there are drill holes on almost on the side of the rim walls.
    Everything else is good. I ride very low pressure and I had several bottom outs causing dents in the rim, however it stays in shape.

    Would I recommend ? For the durability yes. But not if you want to convert to tubeless. Too much pain, little bit more money you get Stans wheels and save the time covering wheel holes and spend more time riding.

    I just got to remember that I used Gorilla Tape instead of Stans to make sure the tape was enough to cover the side wall holes. I had tried stans but they weren't wide enough and had to do multiple runs to cover all the way to the sides.
