Dan, I don't know what to say other than "ugh." So over-utilized! It's almost pandering to put it in a Bontrager review. Besides, I already said all those nice things about Graham so he'll make my tires (that's how it works right?!)
Anyways, they really aren't _that_ cheap (relative an aluminum wheel with the same hub), and they aren't particularly light, so I think if they ride well and prove to be really freakin' strong then we're still on point. It's more like "STRONG, sort of lightish, fairly affordable for an enthusiast - you can have all three."
Also, J-Bend spokes and regular brass nipples. Splined nipples and direct-pull spokes are just a PIA to deal with and aren't doing anything for rim durability.
Lastly, here's the best Keith Bontrager quote of all time:
_"If you are a pro, you ride the fastest thing you can get. If you aren’t, then you can ride anything that suits you.”_
Those are words to live by.
