First Look: DT Swiss' New 240 EXP Hubs
@shlotch: The inner bearing is the hardest to remember to clean and relube. And a 'special tool' and a vice and a long rod for leverage hard to loosen to get to and replace.

Opinion: Carbon and Aluminum Wheels - Does Stiffer Always Mean Better?
Vertical flex isn't it. Of course a properly built wheel doesn't have much. Lateral flex is what you feel leaned over hitting a rock/rut in hard cornering. Or not leaned when one side hits a rock. Every wheel has that to a different degree.

Review: Enve’s M735E Wheels Fail Our Test
In 2012-- "ENVE Composites is using Zyvex Technologies' nano-enhanced carbon fiber technology in a new line of wheel rims for downhill mountain bike racing. The rims are said to out-perform and out-last traditional alloy rims." https://www.compositesworld.com/news/enve-bike-rim-integrates-zyvex-technologies-nanocomposites Are they using this tech in the tested wheelset? Or any current wheelsets? Since the acquisition by Amer Sports? A S also bought Mavic, a brand that appears from their offering to know little about mtbiking.

Comparison Test: Are Wider Rims Better? We Try 4 Different Widths
Optimal rim width varies depending on almost too many factors. Tire volume and tread width on the casing when flat is a way of comparing tires. If you're going with a 2.6 tire that has more volume because of a bit wider casing and pares that with a wider tread you can use those characteristics on a wider rim at lower pressure to get a bigger footprint. Then you have to match that with the terrain and speed. That combo, for me, works better at medium speeds You pick the knob size and height depending on hardpack vs loamy trail surface.
