I have Flow rims laced up to a rear (wide flange) single speed hub and a Hope pro 2. When landing a whip I cannot detect flex from the SS wheel with the wide flanges, on the Hope wheel with lesser width flanges, I can feel flex.

"The lateral stiffness imparted by the spokes goes up with the *square* of the bracing angles, while using more or heavier spokes only results in a linear increase in stiffness… and an increase in weight."

It is the most consistently pointed out "negative" point in Enduro reviews in bike media. However, in years of riding Enduros, I can say it is a non-issue. The cable might have a few marks from thrown rock strikes, but that is about it. I rode 2 Enduros for 8 years. Same cables that came on the bike the entire time. I viewed the cables as a down tube protector. They can collect sticky mud sometimes.That is about it.

Under the downtube, the cables are protected by the cranks and chainring. They never get caught on anything.

I currently do not ride an Enduro, I ride a fancy pants carbon frame with new school internal routing... and have to add a downtube protector for protection.

Is the pump track gone as well? My kids loved it.

It seems the UCI is being stupid rigid and inflexible, but who can make a judgement without seeing the jerseys. Nuts to bounce a team for jersey design. P

Those pads look great, and I am digging the pad customization. Lightweight pads have come a long ways.

That said, I wonder about length of the pad and the containing sock of all of these style light pads. The pad length is down the shin, almost like a shin guard, but not far enough to protect a pedal strike, and a crash is unlikely on the shin.

In addition, the "sock" extends from upper quads to mid calf, like a leg warmer, and as light and breathable as this material is, it still behaves as a leg warmer. Warm on hot days.

Having owned multiple sets of "light" knee pads, including shorter versions, I'm trying to understand the reason for the length. Shorter versions have worked just as well.

Otherwise, pads like these work great, and help me get up laughing when I go down. I wear them all the time and love em.

Ride the brown pow!

Nice to have an edit of mere-mortal type riding, complete with "almost died. Whoooooo!" at the end. I can relate!
