Anyone have any experiences or heard anything about these rims? Mike Garcia is using them and supposedly not had any problems with them, but I asked a larger company that was selling them and they said they've "been having problems with them." Couldn't get any further clarification.

They have a 390 g claimed weight so are slightly less than open pros and cheaper. They have eyelettes (sp?) and are made out of the same material as the super-light CR350 rims.

My open pros were badly built and worn out, so I'm looking to build up a fairly light set for crits and training. I'm 160 lbs. Would probably do Revolutions in the front and non-drive rear with alloy nipples, DB 14/15 gauge & brass nipples on drive side rear, 28f/32r (using my old hubs). Comments?

At your weight and described riding I think the perfect wheelset would be the Speedream Aerolites built by Dave Thomas in AZ. They use good components and he's got a nice rep as a real god wheelbuilder. For about $550 delivered you could ride this wheelset on a daily basis and train on it too.

Nice rims. Word has it the Far East factory which makes these wheels has had trouble keeping up with orders coming into the US. This is why Mike is currently out of the 28 hole black model. If they are having trouble keeping orders filled either their production is inefficient or someone sure likes their product because the demand is there or both? I would use this rim without reservation over the stupid light AC 350's any day. Much more durable and nly 30 grams more per rim, no difference at all when it comes to real life performance.
