Cousin_Gunner you are right, it is not much of a difference. I was more referring to the whole wheelset's weight, not just the rim, which I we obviously couldn't isolate for comparison with a wheelset review.

I was very impressed with the dent resistance in these wheels. Compared to DT rims that I've used in the past, I'd say these are better, but you pay for it with a little extra heft.

I see the front wheel never touched the ground while being ridden, and it was always crooked. Curious for a fork review....

C50_91632150_1249393996

I think this could be a good marketing thing for IMBA Trail Solutions. Once the enduro racers come to a really crappy 'sustainable' corner, and cut it, it'll have to be rebuilt, correct?

Will IMBA be on hand to 'fix' courses that have some bumps in them after the racing stops?

Will I be able to use my cross bike on the sidewalks? It might be faster...

Of all the bikes of all the riders, Brook's bike would be the last I would want. I would never want that GT, but that's not the point. Brook smashes stuff so hard, "barely used" to me sounds like "possibly not broken"

Added reply in a thread 2017 Racing Rumors 11/29/2016 5:47 AM

That sucks. They are focusing on Enduro more than DH, not that that's a bad thing, but they are just canning the DH team completely. Sure, trail bikes sell more than DH bikes, but it helps a brand to have a good image. Look at Santa Cruz. They pulled ... more »

You know you've got something when your relevance hasn't subsided in the last decade of a sport that has evolved/changed as quickly as the tech industry.

His style is almost clean to a fault, like a robot... definitely on the do not kill list.
