Having tried both carbon and metal rims I'm trending back towards metal at the moment. I had no issues with carbon except when I wasn't paying close attention and bought a rim profile that was particularly bad. I also bought $200 Light Bicycle rims and didn't have any failures so got them at a good price and could have bought multiple replacement rims and still not paid brand name carbon pricing. But, metal rims are cheaper and work well as long as I am paying attention to my tire pressure. Just about every time I have dinged a metal rim \[and had a pinch flat\] started with me sitting on my bike thinking **_"Hmmm maybe I should add some air? Errrr...nah it'll be fine and I'll do that before next ride."_** Famous last words. ;-) I'll keep my eye on these WTB rims next time I need some. I like their other products.
