They built up well have been strong so far, they are a touch heavier than most other rims but that isn't an issue for me and have been bullet proof, used the ECR off and on road, an since they are a bit narrower than the Rabbit Hole rims a stock ECR come with, I think they give a better profile to 29+ tyres both Knards and Chronicles
Thanks for the reply, I'm building up an ECR and will be running chronicles, out of interest have you run smaller tyres on the ECR? I know the bb height is quiet low, it was one if the plus points for me. I heard all sorts of dire warnings I suspect from people who have never ridden this frame, the main alternative tyre for me would be a big apple at 2.3" for road use. I suspect a big apple would make a nice road tyre on these rims?
I haven't run smaller tyres on the ECR but have used Big Apples on the Kris Holm rims an they made a good combination though tyre pressure made a huge difference to how they rode, at a guess I'd say the Big Apples would lower the BB by about 10mm not an issue if only used on the road
