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 are awesome wheels. Personally I can feel the difference of 1/3 lb in the wheels and think it makes a significant difference in climbing. I have ridden a lot of rocky fast trails on them and been great so far. In addition the level of detail they include is next level. Tension by spoke, runout to .0x mm, spare spokes, literally every detail of the build. We don't have a lot of the big compressions that Jason was talking about here so haven't noticed any deflection at all with them. Schroeder used to be local here and he rides harder than 99.9% of us, so unless you fit that description I doubt you would notice the deflection as well.

Highly recommend this setup, especially when you consider the price vs weight considering they are $500 less than the Reserves. Hard to beat for a trail bike setup.

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 peeled it off. A rim without a tire would be expected to detonate.

"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.

Appreciate your thoughts on the USDH Unfiltered podcasts we've been doing. The goal thus far has been to keep a relaxed vibe with this sub-division of the Inside Line podcasts to counter the usual interviews detailing an individuals life/career. Which I've personally loved since they started, even prior to being with Vital.

Four episodes in I know for a fact we have room to improve with additional structure a high priority to work on. We have been aiming to keep things natural and let topics flow as they pop up. We have a general outline and talking points for each episode but tightening the reigns to stay focused is something we are conscious of.

Needles, Downtime Podcast, and I'm sure others I'm not aware of offer rad insight into each race as well. Are we trying to compete with their insight? No. All of us have raced at a World Cup level at some point in the past but at this point enjoy speculating from the sideline like everyone else come race weekend.

Always open to more feedback, suggested talking points or specific details you want us to chase down and discuss on the podcast. Cheers!

The rear axle is attached to the chainstay, which is attached to a concentric link at the BB. This would mean it is not a Horst link.
