Good Flatland Rims?

Do you think these rims are any good?

If you are sticking with flatland, then stick with 3/8" axles - they have a similar set, same price with 3/8". I ride very limited street on my flat bike, but have never broken an axle on it in two years and they are Kink/Standard 3/8 axles. Rock solid!

It only weighs four more ounces than a Hazard Light. That's not even all that noticeable of a difference.

It means friend, buddy, chum, etc, etc. Haven't you ever seen Crocodile Dundee?
