NoTubes rims..

Has anyone had any experience with the NoTubes Rims? I am thinking about building up a set of wheels using ZTR Olympic Disc 347g rims and American Classic Hubs. Will it make that big of a difference over my stock Mavic x223 rim Specialized STOUT(front)/Deore(rear) wheels?

I have seen a NoTubes rim laced to a Lefty hub lying around in the shop. It was a customer that wanted a brand new NoTubes rim laced up because the old one was bent. Me and my friend tried to beat the hell out of the old one (throwing it in the air in the parking lot, but couldnt really do any damage...

thats good news! I was worried that those rims were too light to be true. Usually when something is lighter weight i worry about its strength. I only weigh about 115 soaking wet so i dont think i could do too much damage to a wheel. I ride mostly XC and light urban.

The only thing with those rims which I am not happy about is the pressure ratings.
Maximum Tire Pressure
2.2 or larger 42psi
2.0 tire 45psi
1.5 tire 55psi
1.0 60psi

Thats a problem for me
