Does anybody here have experince with them? Are they stiff? Any heavyweights using these with success? By that I mean, trouble free.

Thanks

The 420 rim only goes up to 24 holes. I've considered them, but at 170-180, don't quite trust the 24 spoke option. However, look at the AC hub and velocity fusion rim built by oddsandends. Same hubs, small profile rim, and more spokes built by a reputable builder.

A while back there was a guy who claimed to be a builder for AC talking about building the wheels by doing the spoke prep (oil) and also using locktite on them also. The techies on rbt or rbr kind of tore him up on that one, obviously, the oil and locktite are somewhat contradictory to each other. Nevertheless, most people are having good luck from them from what I heard. Food for thought.
