First Look: DT Swiss' New 1900 Spline Wheelsets
Man that's some science there. He even used a similar weighted rider.

First Ride: 2022 Specialized Stumpjumper EVO Alloy - Adaptability Meets Affordability
I had a buddy strip out a Specialized branded hub with "DT Swiss internals." It stripped the hubshell. I've often seen companies say their wheels use DT Swiss internals which implies the hub she'll wasn't manufactured by DT. This leads me to believe the hub shell wasn't made of an adequate alloy, manufacturing tolerances weren't right, or some other manufacturing defect.

Video: The Top 3 Runs from the Crankworx BC Slopestlye
Maybe the internet and shredits have melted your brain and caused you to have an attention span of a four year old. That's not a problem with slopestyle, that's a you problem. Try reading a book sometime. It'll be hard to not stop and look at your phone at first, but after a couple days of doing it you'll actually find it quite relaxing.

Field Test: Enduro and eMTBs Get Hucked to Flat in Ultra Slow Motion
I have a set of Raceface Sixc carbon dh cranks for sale. Well actually only the non drive side is functional, but I still have both arms. Carbon is the ultimate crank material! Message me your offers on this highly desirable crank arm. This is sarcasm just in case it wasn't obvious. But for real I have a non drive side crank arm with blue logos for the low low.

Field Test: 2022 Transition Spire - Suprisingly Versatile
Can we not call a bike that weights over 33 pounds lightweight? The weight might be perfectly acceptable for it's intended purpose, but it is not light.

XCC Short Track Results from the Val di Sole World Championships 2021
I used a vpn set to France and used the link for France on the Pinkbike page from a couple days ago. I also loaded the link in incognito mode. Worked first try that way. I tried a few other ways that didn't work.

First Look: Evil's New Loophole Wheels are USA-Made With "FusionFiber"
@Nwilkes: My buddy cracked a rear WAO Union rim the second or so week he had it at Windrock on like his second or third run. Would a alloy rim have broken. Maybe. We got him on an alloy rim for the rest of the day with no problem. The other four of us riding were all on alloy with no problems. Well I got a slow leak and a dent that I fixed with a plug. I'm not against carbon rims. I have a set of cross country wheels that I've had for years with only minor issues that where caused by alloy nipples. But I also ran and continue to run that same bike with alloy rims with no issue. The fact is rims break sometimes. If you case or land sideways enough or on a square edge with enough force anything will break.

@blowmyfuse: unless you were breaking the DT Swiss Competition Race spokes in the middle (the butted section) then the spokes weren't your problem. As long as the spoke tension is adequate so they don't lose full tension under load the wheel will be the same strength regardless of the spoke type. Spokes just hold a wheel in tension, the rim under tension is where the strength is derived from. If the spokes aren't breaking then the spokes aren't the problem. Spokes wheels are often misunderstood and there is a lot of pseudoscience about wheels that isn't based in reality.

I kind of have the opposite thought. If it's tough enough for him then I can clearly take a lighter carbon layup. Maybe sell a normal layup and a Barge layup?
