Seems like a good deal for 150, but anybody know the quality of the rims and spokes?

They're not super light racing wheels but they'll get the job done for commuting. I believe they're made by Velocity so they're good quality.

spokes are made of baby bones. Good quality, although slightly oozing evil.

It only states the material but doesn't say anything about butting or anything, I'd assume they are just plain ol' straight gauge ones.

Most budget prebuilt wheelsets come with staight gauge spokes as they are the cheapest.

Wabi wheelsets are the only budget wheels with butted spokes, $150 as well.
