Anyone had any experience with this rim? I'm guessing a 320 gram alloy 29er rim might be a bit on the flexible side but I'd like to hear from anyone who's using them. Does sound too good to be true...

Did order a pair at r2-bike, but after almost a month of waiting to no avail.. I cancelled my order. Also did some research and cant find any english info regarding the Ryde MC-1 29er rims. At a claimed weight of 320 grams a pair, I was expecting it to be flexy as it is made of alu. And according to some sources, its really light, but also a noodle of a rim. It would have been OK with me to try out the rims, if it was available at the time I ordered, but got tired of waiting. Now Im considering the light-bicycles, carbon wide rims at 390 grams, they are no feather weight, but heard some good reviews about them.
