I finally had a chance to replace my anodized handrims with these stainless steel ones. I was looking for something that wouldn't wear out in a few months and had less friction (heat) when going downhill. I personally like simple and compact, making it easier to get through narrow doorways as well as keeping the weight to a bare minimum. So far, I'm pleased with these new stainless steel ones. My only complaint is the $$$$ price tag (almost $400 for a pair seems a bit much).
