First Ride: Zipp Enters the Mountain Bike World With New 3Zero Moto Carbon Wheels
@CrispiRider: Sorry, but you've lost me on your question. I have no idea how many people make single wall carbon rims.

@Inertiaman: In regards to the linked video I agree! My intent of linking that video though, is to show that with even a moderate hit, the spokes are going to surely go into a good amount of compression, trying to poke a hole in the rim tape of these single-wall rims. If these single wall rims are MADE to be more compliant, they should compress/deflect/absorb the ground/whatever even more? Seems like the rim tape would need a rigid band under it to keep the nipples seated, or something.

@sngltrkmnd: Have you seen those slow mo rim testing videos? These are DESIGNED to deflect so I'm guessing the actual deflection is pretty substatial. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RiUSywlUk48

I really like this concept! The only thing I wonder about, is how do they keep the spokes from poking through the rim tape, when the rim deflects?

Review: The 2019 Pole Machine Has a Serious Need For Speed
I can't fathom riding a bike with a chainstay that long. I like to pop small gaps, transfer from side to side of the trail, and manual without planning 30' in advance.
