I ran a set of Reserve 30's for several years with zero issues as well. They are still going strong on the bike I sold them with. Wheels were absolutely bomb proof and I would be riding a new set instead of the WA1 Unions if they were actually available anywhere globally.

Have a set of the Control's now on my SJ and they...more

Total side point here, I did the review of the OG Reserve 30s. I still have them and they are still working awesome. I've re-laced the rear wheel once, and just popped 2 spokes yesterday inferring I may need to do it again. Never in my life have I seen such great rim durability, to the point where you need to continually relace the wheel before you end up breaking the rim. For those wondering, I used to run cushcore, now I usually just run DH casing. Rim strikes do happen.

Point I'm making, I know nothing about the Roval and am sure they are great, but Santa Cruz's wheels are the most impressive I've ever been around.

If people really want to discuss the value of a team & coverage of the sport, I'll make a new thread, as I find this incredibly interesting. I don't want to clog this up with such back and forth. A lot of what you are saying I totally agree with,

I'm usually well outside the loop on any of this stuff. That said, being I'm usually on the finance side of things (in other industries) I can't imagine how difficult it'd be to "sell" a WC team on an ROI basis unless you can produce results. (and even ... more »

sspomer, nice to have the audio interviews. Who is the new guy doing them? Quick and to the point.

So I captured some freeze frames and I think the tire comes off before the wheel drops into the hole it explodes in. Why the tire is coming off, I don't know, but the wheel looks normal in the first photo with the tire starting to peel off. Maybe he lost pressure, pushed around that tree and...more

in audio he mentioned taking it easy this week. someone (maybe it was him?) mentioned not even doing a timed run today to conserve energy for the week. edit - his plate number is 62 - is it only top 60 allowed for timed runs now?

"Acoustic Bikes"? Hard nope there. Can we all just agree that the nomenclature for a normal fully mechanical non-motor assisted bike is a bike and a e-bike is an e-bike.

Bummer. Really wanted to see him pull an Amaury and get right back on the bike, crushing it.

Go buy a segway/surron. Less than 1/2 the money. Faster. Or yeah, just go buy a real dirt bike. New KTM 300XC is $10.5K.

Listen to Behind Enemy Lines. Do that. I love the banter, and there is a nostalgia I get listening to you guys. But I'm also one of the fellow weirdos (I say that nicely) who spent my youth (poorly) chasing the DH dream. (very very poorly)

For those who never raced DH as a "young adult", your insight is what is valuable, so aim to bring that forth faster. Skip the inside jokes. Trim the fat. Don't be scared to have an opinion, it is podcasting after all.

You guys have something

Appreciate your thoughts on the USDH Unfiltered podcasts we've been doing.

This is chill. Would be even better with a video or photo slideshow overlay to help visualize what sections we’re hearing discussed.
