they are a softer metal than the dx-32's. im glad someone finally pointed this out. this is why they dent so much easier than dx's and why they have to be ground much more often. it is a good rim though and i do think its nice to have some coo' color options. but alas i have a stack of dx-32's here needing to be used up...
if you dent stuff a lot, look elsewhere. otherwise, buy away!
I've only ever dented one rim and that was that tioga one, and apparently they were sorta known for it. I fully deserved it too so I don't even blame it on the rim too much.
Justin my back rim is only tweaked because I'm a kook. I didn't think I would be riding the spokes that are on there too long so I never used loc tite or anything when building. I also never bothered checking spoke tension first couple weeks. A few rides later I was trying hurricanes and tweaked it pretty good cause there was no tension at all. I've since gave up the spinning stuff cause I have the pitbull for that now.
I'll make a couple phone calls hopefully tomorrow if I get the time and will get back to you if I'm in need Graham. The grinding thing won't apply because of the disks, so I got at least one less worry. Thanks for all the info.
