Aaron Gwin at the US DH National Championships - Video
It's sad to me there's like 20 people at the bottom to see gwin finish. American downhill scene is at a serious low...even while our world talent is at an all time high....pathetic USA cycling. Stop funding roadies....or wherever their attention is...idk.

DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 29 Wheels - Review
@y0bailey: I don't really care, I was simply pointing out the difference between weight at the exterior of your wheels, versus other parts of the bike, and the effect is has. Rotational weight matters to me...but 50g is pretty minimal.

Ask Us Anything: DVO Suspension - Finished
It's a gimmicks for bulk bike brands to get the sensitivity a properly shimmed shock can provide. That's my guess...

@RollinFoSho: yeah the magnetic or sprag clutch hubs are sweet. 321, onyx, there's another one I forgot. A guy I know who's large and rides hard has 321 and loves them...

DT Swiss XM 1501 Spline One 29 Wheels - Review
@atrokz: it's not even a maintenance interval issue. I've been replacing the springs on 1/3 of the new trek hubs after they sound weird during my test rides. These are the pawl designs, not star ratchet. But the star ratchets on anyone over 200 lbs that rides, has been blowing up ratcheting rings. Could be production shifted to inferior supplier's to match demand. Idk. I do remember the days when they were reliable. They just simply are not now. As far as what I'd reccommend...idk. If you're a big guy hard on hubs, spend more and get king...I've had good luck on my atomlabs, but not everyone does, and their freehub material is soft if you're on shimano cassette, not xd....xd and I would try atomlabs for similar pricepoint. Shimano, maybe try I9, they seem OK. Or upgrade to king.

50 grams of rotational weight though....you'd have to lose it at the tire to make the same difference. Rotational weight grows as you accelerate. ...stem or static part weight doesnt....

@atrokz: I have seen more DT hubs fail than any brand when considering OEM parts. The DT brand star ratchet teeth dent and chip when they don't get full engagement. Also the springs in OEM DT hubs are often too weak causing partial engagement and similar issues. Their very common hub problems stem from weak springs in my opinion. They wouldn't have sent us a big bag of stronger springs if this weren't a problem....
