This rim is meant to be used with a presta tube. (That's the one piece of information I didn't see on this page.)

Rim arrived out of true with hub adjusted way too tight. After adjustments made seems like a beefy rim comparable in weight to other alloy touring rims I've had that were much more expensive but will have to wait & see if it stands up to rigors of loaded touring.

First - this is a presta drilled rim. The product description fails to mention this and it's critical information for a potential buyer.

Upon immediate inspection of the rim I noticed two disturbing aspects - the spoke nipple ends are sticking out of the internal rim surface by a great amount - probably 2mm and the edges are sharp. This means that to safely use the rim without fear of a blowout, you need to use two layers of high quality velox tape. I would not trust vinyl tape or rubber inserts to this rim. I might even go so far as to suggest sanding down the corners of the spoke ends.

Secondly, I noticed about a 2mm burr or chunk taken out of the outermost drive side threading. I doubt this was due to shipping mishandling as the plastic protector shims should prevent handling damage to that part of the hub. I was concerned that my freewheel would not be able to screw on to the rim or at the very least it would strip the threading. After greasing the freewheel threads, I am happy to report the freewheel threaded on without problems. However, this doesn't mean it won't cause problems on future freewheel changes.

While this is true for most budget oriented wheels, it bears repeating of other reviews that the hub feels a little overtight and a little gritty; I recommend a hub overhaul first thing.

The good - the wheel arrived remarkably true with all spokes appropriately tensioned - it looks/feels like a very strong wheel good enough for loaded touring on my 70s Univega frame. If it weren't for the fact that you have to use two layers of rim tape + the freewheel threading issue, I would have given this rim 4 stars.

I bought this wheel for an old trek 400 I was fixing up for my aunt, I needed a wheel that could except a 7 speed hub, this wheel did the trick. I had to tru the wheel a bit, and adjust the hub, but for the money I expected that. I searched the all over the web, and this was the cheapest price I could find.

The previous comment is not true. I just bought this wheel. It is dished for a 7-speed cassette (hence 7s) not a single speed or fixed gear. I also received it poorly packed for shipment and beat up with a hole in the side.

I just received this wheel yesterday. It was packaged very well inside an extra large box. The wheel arrived very straight. It could use some minor adjustments but it's more than straight enough to slap on a tube/tire and ride. Build condition seems to be pretty good. The spokes were all tightened down as they should be. As mentioned in another review, the hub is a little tight. I don't currently have the wrenches to adjust the hub but I'll be getting some in short order.
