Overall Review:

The set of Spank 33's I now own are the 26 inch version and on their 3rd bike since being purchased in 2012. They were built up on Dt Swiss hubs and run on a 2012 Giant Reign X. They were then given to another friend who laced them to Hope Pro 3 hubs and ran them on another 2012 Giant Reign X. And now the rims laced to the Hope hubs live on my park bike. 3 riders, 3 bikes, a ton of rides, zero issues. No wobbles, no dents, nothing, and it wasn't for a lack of trying. these original rims are fantastic and dependable, without weighing a ton. I can only imagine the newer versions are refined more than my rims and even better than the OG version.
