If you mean "Sun", yes. I have a pair of ME14A rims with about 5,000 miles on them. They don't look very impressive, but they've held up well under my 195+/-.
Worked fine for me at 220 lbs.cory

I bought an old Trek at a garage sale for $20 mainly to get the bar-end shifters. It came with Sun rims I didn't really plan to use, but I repacked the hubs and i've had them on a couple of bikes. can't remember the model (CR-18 comes to mind, but that could be something else). No problems; just decent ordinary wheels.

Yes, I have ridden Sun Mistral M17 and M19 rims for over 10 years. They have been bulletproof as well as very light.

I have Sun 0 degree Lite rims on my mtn. bike and they are light but very strong.

These are made in Warsaw, IN. USA (I used to work across the street from their distribution center). Having ridden both road and mtb versions, I'd say that they have a quality product. BTW, if I'm not mistaken, I think they make rims sold under the Ritchey label as well.

I like them a lot; will almost certainly use their Rhino Lites again when I get my freeride rig together. Didn't know they were into road rims at all, though. I'm gonna keep that in mind if I decide to build a second set of road wheels.
