    Need opinions- Sun Ringle DS-2XC Rims?!?

    My LBS is building up a CK wheelset for me and swears this rim is a great choice. They have never steered me wrong, I weigh 210lb.s, but can't find many reviews on them. Any opinion out there?

    Thanks!

    As far as I can tell, they ar off-shore versions of the DS1-XC, I have both rims on several wheels, and they have held up fine. They are a ~400gm light XC rim, so proper wheel build is important for longevity. They have held up fine through all the local rock gardens & skinnies, but then I only weigh 150lb. I'm not big on drops.

    Cheers,

    Tom
