Rims for urban/FR

Sun Mammoth vs Alex DX32 vs Alex DM24... I'm thinking of the latter, any suggestions? Oh, and the frame is a hardtail - '01 Norco 125cc. No big drops on flat planned, mostly DR/DH/primitive urban.

Wow long time meHt...hows life.

DX32 has a good rep. Sun Mammoth seem to be overrated AND overweight. Have nothing on the third one.

My bf and I have had really good results with Mammoths. My bf and several of his freinds had Alex's taco, but never Mammoths. Hehe, I even use to race on them.

Thanks for the replies! I've checked out nsmb and mtbr reviews on these rims and they all seem pretty positive. Damn, I guess I'll have to choose by the aesthetics factor.
