Anybody here have experience with weinmann rims and origin or formula hubs or eighthinch wheels? Needing a new wheelset and these can be gotten cheaply.
Any recommendations would be appreciated.

Me commuter (2009 Kona Dew Drop) has them. Sorta heavy but strong enough for me to jump gutters and belt potholes. I'm 83kg.

formula hubs are a decent, no frills hub, as far as I know, they are re-badged and used in the hugely popular Velocity Deep V / B43 wheelsets. You could do much worse.

I have heard OK things about the Weinmann rims - apparently not as strong as a Velocity, but the price difference may make them a great option.

If the wheelset can be had for <$180 I think they would be a good buy.

I've got a set of Weinmanns on Origin 8 hubs for about 2 months now. Done about a 400kms on Syd road and so far pretty good. Still true but I am only 70kgs.

Well i can now fully vouch for the weinmann deep-v rims since last night I T-boned a car that pulled out in front of me from a stop sign. Even after leaving a huge dent in car my wheel is still perfectly true. I did somehow though get an instant flat in my rear tube even though it didn't hit anything; quite strange.
