I have a pair of Alex rims on my 07 San Jose. They're fine. I've had to true the back one a couple times after a trip down some technical trails. Yesterday I got a branch jammed in there that sheared off the tube stem completely. That would bonk any rim I suppose. One thing's for sure, the spokes are burly. They didn't flinch.

That being said, I'm lusting after a set of aeroheads or fusions laced to Ben's four star hubs (for weight savings). I'll still keep the Alex as a second set, though. Kind of like them.
