    ALOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOT!

    I am not sure of the wheel weight - but the rims are SUPER heavy... ~960g

    Given that a Mag 30 is pretty heavy but is ~800g....

    A 321/729 is about 670 I think....

    They Beez Heavy! I have some 03 Pimps wirth Aircorp hubs... they take an unreal beating - havent had to true em, they are perfectly round - after 3 years of FR/DH...

    The sidewalls will fold from a nasty hit - but a crescent wrnech will straighten it out! Have about 4 of these over 3 years - rim still killing....

    HOwever the crappy Atom freehub body is dead and not rebuildable.....oh well - 30$ for a replacement, move the wheels to my Urban HT and get some DHR's......

    get something else

    I had the trailpimp wheelset on my g-spot and they were completely trashed in less than a year riding... I do about half trail riding and half urban/street... never more than 7 or 8 foot to flat, always smooth. These things won't even lay flat on the floor now. Got some Mavic 321's laced to the same hubs now and things seem good so far. Too bad the g-spot didn't make it through my 7 months of living on the shore.... now i'm stuck on the hardtail.
