    Indestructable, yet light?

    i have trailpimps. but i am looking at a new wheelset. i can only order **** from bti, so these are my top choices (in order)

    1) Alex DX 32
    2) Sun Ringle MTX
    3) Arrow FRX
    4) Atomlab Pimplite

    ya, they're all pretty light, compared to trailpims, so i don't know what the hell to get.

    thanks.

    my MTX rims lasted 2 weeks before turning into egg shaped wheels......

    my DX32's on the other hand, have lasted me almost 5 years now on my DJ bike, and i weigh in at ~200lbs........

    the DX32's are the best rims i have ever come across, they have never been untrue and have zero flatspots or dings..........
