Anyone got any experience of these rims? I'm looking at some wheels built using them but they don't get great reviews:

I'm a fairly light rider and don't have a habit of bending rims, so just wondering if anyone cares to comment. Thanks :)

good rims, have had a set for 8 years and only just sold them, cant go wrong with them really, think the only problem with them was the side walls used to curve in hard after a while, still got a nos one in my shed someware.

I've had no complaints with the 231, 217, 517 and 717 i've owned. Just checking if there was a specific problem with these as, like you say, Mavic are generally good so was suprised with some of the comments. They may simply have not been very well built wheels rather than any fault of the rim.
