    Are these Vuelta rims any good?

    I tried searching, but there seems to be more than one company with the name Vuelta. Are these rims good? I'm thinking about building them up with an set of older Shimano 600 hubs.

    I picked up a pair of vuelta shallow rims on ebay a bit ago laced to forumlas for right around $100 and I've been way suprised at how much I like them. They're holding up super well, nice and true... they seem sturdy enough... and lighter than my dp 18's

    Thanks for the tips everyone. I'll probably buy them, and build my first set of wheels this winter!

    Id go with the SUN's before the Vuelta's. Iv owned many sets of SUN rims through BMX, Mountain bike, and Road bike applications. I have never been disappointed with any of them.
