I ride freestyle fixed and I built a pair of these up because I heard so many good things about them. They were right. REALLY strong, beefy wheels that can take my 260lbs jumping off of a 4ft ledge over and over again. They are worth the time and money to build. Treefort has the best price on them I can find anywhere on the internet and they shipped the rims pretty quick so Im happy with my whole experience with the rims and the service!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have these rims laced 3 cross to IRO hubs and I run them on my fixed gear. They are extremely strong and look great. The only downside I have found is that they are a bit heavy, but I guess strength comes with a price.
As a super-clydesdale rider, I wanted to build a set of strong wheels. These worked out nicely. Coupled with DT-Swiss Champion spokes I have zero flex. Obviously not the lightest wheel ever built, but I couldn't ask for a better combination of weight and strength.
A quick note to the builder: because there is a large gap between the inner and outer wall, it can be difficult to get spoke nipples to fall into the spoke hole. I threaded an upside-down nipple on a spoke to guide it into place and everything fell together nicely. Once the wheel was laced, it trued nicely.
