Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

I have a Weinmann wheelset on my Schwinn that have been rolling for 22 years, on Maillard Hubs.

40 spoke rear and 36 front.

My Raleigh Detour came with Weinmann CN520 wheels and they are ok, a little out of true but they survive some abuse: rough patches of road where potholes used to be, climbing and dropping curbs, full speed into a sidewalk slab hard enough to knock my EL530 from its mount. front suspension probably helped with that last one.

The Weinmann name is now owned by a Taiwanese or Chinese company and has nothing to do with the former brake and rim manufacturer.
I have a "new" Weinmann rim for two years ( I guess the model is "DPX" ; I would have to look up to verify) which was very affordable and is rock-solid; it is also used on some tandems.

I just purchased a pair of Weinmann rims to replace a set on a old Schwinn. So far I like them and have not had any problems.

This set certainly looks clyde-proof . Double-butted spokes would be better than straight spokes; but for this price you cannot expect them.
