Tire Choices & Pressures of 20 Pro Racers - Les Gets DH World Cup 2023
That and you actually care what happens to your rims and probably don't get fresh rubber every couple runs. Will be interesting to see who's running inserts at MSA and Snowshoe.

Love this! These bikes are like 60s era muscle cars. Modern bikes, like modern cars to muscle cars, outperform them in every conceivable way - except in the style dept.

Revel Bikes Launch the RW30 V2 Wheels
@mattg95: Like a GG frame, a lot more durable and resilient to rock strikes, crashing and general trail smashing. Admittedly, a rim is seeing different types of stresses than a bike frame, but I sincerely believe a lot of products will shift to thermoplastic technology and away from the usual hand laid thermoset products.

Revel Bikes Launch the RW30 V2 Wheels
I have 3 sets and have never, ever had an issue with the hubs (Torch hubs, so can't speak for the Hydras). My riding buddies also have several sets and they've been stellar too, but we mainly roll with them because we live in NC and like supporting "local" companies. That said, I have heard of people experiencing issues with the hubs, so I won't say they're better than CKs, Profiles, etc... But having tried other wheelsets, I have found the straight pull aluminum spoked wheels are just so, so much stronger and stiffer than any j-bend spoked wheel - which of course doesn't apply with the Revel wheels since they're j-bends. But if their thermoplastic resin is like GGs front triangles, the rims will be substantially superior to a traditional thermoset rim.

Pinkerton on the case! And 62 kph? I know there's a motorway on the track, but still, that is moving :wow:

Props to the lady at 1:10"! Bit of a tricky move and she managed more or less avoid a real yard sale. So cool to see the ladies get shreddy, even if there is the occasional (and obligatory) mistake.

Video: Actual Weights of World Cup DH Bikes with Ed Masters
I would've thought they would express Roger Viera's bike weight as "before" and "after" separation.

@adminofthegapers: True, although they do have a big hand in the design of said products. But still, I'm with you in a general sense - which is one of the reasons why I ride a Guerrilla Gravity.
