I was more inclined to say it looks like it'll have a bit too much AS for me.

Yup. Usually when I see a review of something like this pop up on the front page of... that other site, I just go straight here to see if there's a review up by someone who actually knows what the fuck they're doing.

no worries, and thanks for being constructive. i see both sides to the argument. since i'm not at the race, i personally loved seeing a lot of action (even if it wasn't quite as A.D.D. as some RAW vids), but i can see where you're coming from.

Good seeing a panning shot from a distance as they don't look so crazy fast.

Look at the speed Minnaar and Shaw come out of that turn at 2:15 compared to the Giant rider.

Now that review makes far more sense (looking at the numbers) than the garbage review from Pinkbike.

One thing I would say is you guys need to get a midget tester who can ride the medium because I couldn't ride that thing with its 130mm head tube. Well maybe with a flat bar and the stem slammed but I have no idea why it's 30mm longer than many mediums.

That's a great question









Personally I feel many companies oversell their products' capabilities as may have been the case here. That said, I wouldn't be caught on a downhill bike on Tucson's trails. A trail/enduro bike is a far better match given the varied terrain.

505g isn't that light for a carbon rim either. Would have thought it could take more than that. What's the bead thickness?

waiting for sram's pre-production answer. i love the honesty vital. it makes your reviews far more valuable. for that price, you can get some seriously blingy wheels and with less gray area in the warranty.

SRAM is a damn good company and they do have high standards. But sometimes even their products need to be tested by experienced riders on terrain where may SRAM didn't/couldn't test their goods out. This is why reviews are so "Vital" to us consumers and also to the manufactures. It's how...more

Yep that was a real review. Pinkbike would have sent it back to SRAM and they would have found a 'manufacturing defect' to have caused it and production rims would be improved accordingly. I get why they're trying to sell these wheels as packages, it's the same for Specialized's Roval wheels, but if you purchased a set of wheels and you need a replacement rim you should be able to purchased one.

BTW Apart from pedals I don't have a single non-SRAM part on my bikes.
