It's a $350 bicycle, what did you expect? For a comparative, I paid $350 for the rear wheel on my fixed CrossCheck.
These bikes are mean as inexpensive entry points for people who want to do some casual riding. Decent quality, it will hold up for a couple of years, by which time you'll have relegated it to the garage/basement or moved on to higher quality.

Yes, an inexpensive wheelset on an inexpensive bike is a sound investment.
This is Africa, 1943. War spits out its violence overhead and the sandy graveyard swallows it up. Her name is King Nine, B-25, medium bomber, Twelfth Air Force. On a hot, still morning she took off from Tunisia to bomb the southern tip of Italy. An errant piece of flak tore a hole in a wing tank and, like a wounded bird, this is where she landed, not to return on this day, or any other day.
