Exclusive Ride Report: FOX Live Valve Active Suspension System
I don't think it'll make me win any races! Where can I buy more time to ride my bike and bigger balls, these things could make a real difference.

Superstar Components AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
I work for a supplier to Airbus as a Lead Stress Engineer, in fact now I'm a team lead. I can technically 'sign-off' stress reports for technical qualityn and corectness.

Superstar Components AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
I compared Supstar AM Carbon, to Stans Flow EX and another brand of carbon rim, who I did not know the manufacturer of.

Superstar Components AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
I did the testing on behalf of Superstar at Bath University, I am a signatory level Aerospace engineering with significant experience on carbon fibre. For the tests we performed, they were indeed many times stronger than a Stans Flow EX, a quality ally alternative.

Superstar Components AM Carbon Wheelset - Review
I did some lab testing of these rims on behalf of Superstar. Part of the work involved inspection of micro-section cut through the rim to check for manufacturing quality; porosity, fibre alignment etc. Although not up to aerospace industry standard that I am familiar with, the internal quality of the rims was very high. The external woven material, although adding to the aesthetic of the rim, also adds to the impact resistance. A woven cloth perform much better at resisting an impact than a uni-directional material. I rode some of these rims for over two years and they were as good as new when I had to part company to fund my change to fashionable 27.5 wheels. Other than a few minor scratches, they were as good as new. And still very true. Much better than any similar age ally rim. I have a particular story that summarise their strength. Whilst racing in Grizedale, I hucked a rock garden insufficiently and landed in some big rocks. The bang from the landing was massive and the assembled crowd 'oohed' anticipating a mashed rear wheel. I rode on for a few hundred yards to discover I had pinch flatted the TYRE (I was running tubeless), the rim was still as good as new. Massively strong and impact resistant!

Suuuuper slack! I hope he doesn't want to go around any corners! Looks sweet. Can't wait until the day that this is a complete build and we do need to not all the detritus to our bikes. Good to see you making some sales. Progress is slow my end...
