If Rude didn't wear it I wonder how many would sell? It does seem to be styled on a hollowed out pumpkin...

Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
@skelldify: There's a massive thread on mtbr I think - well over a 1000 pages! There's a few that have broken, but the general consensus is overwhelmingly positive. When there has been a problem, Lb also seem to have looked after their customers pretty well, although there is some delay due to the distances involved. Search for the 'cheap Chinese rims' thread and it should come up...

An Afternoon with Vanzac Jackson Davis - Video
@jwrendenver: The car probably belongs to their mate, so that might be just what they do to each other? Might be ok. The luge is likely to be a complete stranger though, so almost undoubtedly a douche move. Otherwise, great riding!

Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
Another LB customer here - I was a little worried at first at the non brand but after reading thousands of reviews on mtbr I took the plunge and I've been very impressed. I'd happily recommend them to anyone...

Max Chapuis' Change: From DH to EWS - Video
There seems to be a bit of a theme from some of the Dh racers switching from DH to EWS that the riding is more fun? You certainly get more riding in on any given race weekend! To those guys who switch up because the riding is more fun, kudos to you! I think one of the things EWS does well is the differing tracks and venues it offers, whilst keeping a more fun atmosphere (I'm sure it's just as competitive at the top end though). I love DH but it is so specialised that, whilst it is undoubtedly the pinnacle of the sport, it just feels like EWS is more relatable and achievable by 99% of riders out there. I'm not sure if that is good or bad... Best of luck in the upcoming year Max...

Carbon Wheels That Cost Less - Taipei Cycle Show
I've a set of Lb rims that I had built up by the LBS with Hope Pro4 hubs and Dt Swiss spokes - they cost the same as a top whack Alu wheelset but weigh less by over 200g by your calculation. That's a big weight saving and immediately noticeable in the ride. I had a pair of closeout 26" Easton carbons before and I loved the additional speed they injected into the ride so it was a no brainer for me to go carbon again (although I did a LOT of online research about durability and Customer Service for Lb before buying). Similarly a friend of mine has just made the jump to carbon too (some E13's) and he can't believe the difference. If I was on a downhill bike where 90% of the run was covered in roots and rocks perhaps the additional deflection properties of an Alu rim would help, but for general riding I think the carbon rims win out for me. Don't get me wrong - I will happily do Dh runs on them on my enduro bike - and I do ride tech stuff, but with relatively low pressures in a tubeless setup I just don't see the deflection argument being super important for non-DH riding.
