OK - these are overkill if you want to just want a light wheelset to get around town.
But if you want worry free curb hopping/pot hole hitting/gravel crushing wheels - this might be the ticket you need.

I used these wheels for a couple months on my SS when it was set up rigid. They worked well with 29x2.4 tires. But being a rigid, I made a change up to 2.6" tires and wanted a wider inner width for more volume.

I them moved them over to my fisticuff to run a set of 700x45 WTB Riddlers. This setup was flawless and left me super happy both my SS and gravel bike got upgraded with 1 move. I stumbled accross a fork for my gravel bike that looks cleaner than the stock one (canti-bosses) - so I made the swap. But it is a thru axle, so these wheels had to come off.

Unfortunately for me, these wheels have seen little use as the Covid restriction with my work have kept my gravel routes outside the boundaries I can travel. Total distance on the wheels are about 600km.

The Good:
Tape and valves and easy setup to tubeless.
Will come with rotors 180 Front and 160 Rear
It will fit up to an 11sp MTB cassette which is perfect for a 1x setup on a gravel rig.
No scarrring on the freehub.

The Bad:
Cosmetic blems -light scratches on the rim stickers and a couple more light scratches on the rim itself. My cell was unable to capture those - but they are there.

I would prefer not to ship, but will do so via blackcat at buyers expense.
