Purely anectodal, to be certain. To be honest, the only 2 rims I've seen have spokes pull through have been eyeletted anyhow (Mavic Open Pro, and Salsa Delgado Cross) both with many thousands of miles on them. The Open Pro didn't phase me too much, the Delgado Cross I was surprised, but the owner explained the harsh abuse the wheel had seen over it's 10,000+ mile lifetime.
Heck, I've got multiple pairs of IRO Cold Fusion rims (unbadged Velocity Fusions, AFAIK
) and even during CX racing season and multiple race and training crashes, I have cracked one of those. So I trust the durability of Velocity's equipment.
