    Yes, my DA C24 set goes a little out of true, and my xr200 hand built goes a little out of true. But I am brutal to them so it doesn't surprise me. My xr270 set goes out of true the least often.

    The first time they ship, it's fast. If they have goofed up the order, any additional parts they ship will take between 2 weeks and one month to arrive.

    Yes, you take off a few grams by reducing the amount of carbon otherwise used for heat absorption. But over 400g for a rim is by no means...

    You always need enough material to hold the bead together and have enough strength to endure impacts. The AX 45mm rim is about 300 grams as well. A disc rim will not be lighter.

    Yet you haven't shown me a single disc brake rim under 400g, while I can get rim brake rims under that all day long.

    Holy moly, you're as dense as a cube of neutronium. Post some disc specific rims that are lighter than rim brake rims. I've already challenged Bob, and he hasn't delivered.
