Downhill Secret Revealed: Flat Tire Defender Foam Inserts - First Look
But people don't buy carbon wheel sets because they are light because they really aren't that light. If weight were your biggest concern get an EX 471 or a spank spike enduro. They are plenty strong and lighter than ENVE DH rims. The main reason to buy carbon rims is for the stiffness.

I did experience a little bit of trouble but I expected it from feedback of others. I had to file out a little relief in the the rocker link to provide clearance for shock. It is not a lot of material but it can be a little scary none the less. As for bearings and spacers/hardware, The shop I bought the shock through took care of all that for me.

1 Question - What's Keeping the Gearbox Down?
I totally agree with this. I have been entertaining getting into the gearbox club but would be very reluctant to journey down any other path than a downhill bike for this reason. What is the efficiency of a gearbox compared to a standard drive train? I am very impressed at the gear ratios they can deliver but at what cost? @groghunter a belt will work for a hard tail or single pivot applications just fine but that really limits the ability for the suspension designs that the consumers seem to prefer these days to be used. However I think this is something that could be remedied by a robust tension arm designed for use with belts. (maybe one already exists that I haven't seen yet)

Stepping Out of the Pain With Gee Atherton
I would love to see Gee come back and have a stellar year but I wonder if this article is preemptive of a bigger announcement coming. Rumors have been swirling that Gee is going to pursue a full time rally career with the backing of a major automotive sponsor. Either way Wish him all the luck in the world in whatever endeavors he pursues.
