    Sun Ringle Black Flag Pro SL 29er Problems?

    Anybody having problems with the Black Flag Pro SLs? I was very excited to build up my niner with this recently released 2013 wheelset by Sun Ringle (Hayes) and they don't seem to be as strong as their spec says. By my second ride on flowing single track XC trails with 28PSI in both tires -- I had dents, twisted spokes and two out-of-true wheels. No hard hits, etc. Weird. It's almost as if the tensile strength of the new "SL" rim material they are using is failing way too early.

    Customer service denied any problems. Is anyone seeing the same issues?

    So . . . Sun Ringle took care of my problems 100% and earned yet another satisfied customer. These guys build solid wheels and treat their customers the same way. Thank you to Sun Ringle and Hayes Components.

    You should elaborate more on how it went.
    From customer service not helping to actually getting somewhere.

    I just pulled the trigger on these wheels. Wondering how they are holding up for people that have these and what size tires people are running.
    I'm thinking 2.1 to 2.2's max for the narrow 23mm wide rims.
