    I would recommend the Atomlab DHR but I just found a nice dent in the side of mine, after like 3 rides.

    I'm sure you'll hear a recommendation for the Arrow Rims

    perhaps I should taken the advise...
    This is my signature. There are many like it but this one is mine.

    What are you looking for? Light or strong?
    How about a WTB Lazerdisc DH rim on a Lazerdisc DH qr hub? Strong and light.

    Funn

    Not sure about the weigh (or if you care) but I hear they're bullet-proof

    I also think they're hard to find. I know Transition uses them on their bikes.

    Sad that you can rarely get both. I'm still sticking with my convictions that the rhynolyte or the singletrack is a good rim. I've abused the shiit out of mine and they're still in perfect condition. The build is where it's at when it comes to getting a strong wheel, though.

    I have gone through a lot of rims this year; 2 Rhyno lites, 2 mavic F219s, a Tioga Dh, an Azonic Outlaw, and a Mavic 521. I am still looking for that one rim to rule them all. Here is a short list that I am considering. Sorry the pic didn't come out too clear. Here is a link to the site that I got the information on:
    http://www.mtbstore.com/mountain-bike-wheels/rims.php

    I think their prices might be a little high. I just use that site to get an idea of what I want to try next and then buy it from my LBS, The Path.

    If you build it you get to jump it, forget them.

    Doublewides have tendancies of collapsing. Despite me never having problems with mine. Its just one of those gripes people have, just like hfx9s always failing.

    is making a comeback.

    Turns out that five years of not mountain biking, really makes one strive to get back to it.

    Salsa Gordo...

    lotsa spoke options, works good with up to a 2.7in. tire., it's relatively light, strong as anything. And, they're only $50, then lace it up with 14g. spokes, brass nips, maybe an xt 6 bolt hub (I have one in silver I'll sell ya for $25 incl. shipping thass seen no use as I run nutted hub w/ horizontal dropouts now.)

    I've been running my Gordo's for two years now with not one problem whatsoever on my hardtail, I'm 270 lbs. with all my gear and have hit drops up to 10 ft., dirt jumps, you name it. They're bad, they smoke singletracks anyday.

    IMHO there is no alternative for a light fr rim. These things are strong!

    Hey Skinny I went to the website on the bottom of your post, looks like you guys are building some sick trails. I noticed that their is a map to these trails does this mean that they are legal? I think I might have to go visit Grandma and Grandpa up in McMinville.

    Stinky,

    I've got the answer for you. After watching Scott throw huge, and eat huge on his Sunn Double tracks, I'm convinced they are the strongest thing out there. They are pretty heavy, but from what I've seen, indestructible. He has double butted spokes in a 4X pattern, laced to Saint hubs.

    sweet!!!! ....... that's huge.... nice one skinny....

    on the wheel thing I've found the strongest rim to be the Mavic EX729.. it's heavy....
    for general abuse I like the sun singletracks... strong but not to heavy
    for trail light fr Mavic 519 are the bomb....I bought them 3 yrs ago still ride them...they have never needed to re-trued.....
