    Yes, this is correct, and I'll add the category is known as Mini Velo, particularly popular in Japan.

    They are not designed for "younger riders," as they are fully their own thing, and the range...

    That gets to what I was asking Psimet about, plus the very basic question of breakpoints, meaning, what is defined as shallow, what as deep, and is there a depth at which they start acting/feeling...

    I take it you're feeling the tire difference in that example, right? Or are you suggesting something else about rim construction?

    Psimet2001 So, shallow rims are less vertically stiff than deep section, and wheels flex. My thought has been that the amount of deflection in shallow rims (which is resisted and controlled by the...

    Hmm, I notice a difference between my 32h Open Pros and my 18/24 30mm Argents, but it's in terms of responsiveness or liveliness, and I don't think the Pros feel softly comfy, just kinda vague.

    Yeah, I get the tire thing, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about discernible differences in comfort between wheels.

    Deep section, whether carbon or aluminum, are clearly more...

    Wheel comfort?

    A current thread about wheels, in one of the other sub forums, poses one of the prospective buyer's criteria as "comfort," which struck me as odd.

    Well, maybe not odd, but unfamiliar, because...

    If conversions are on the table (and I guess aside from ease-of-use, why not?) there are options in alu/carbon factory direct wheelsets, like Yoeleo, where you could net a 24/28h, 23mm wide, 38mm...

    The American Classic Hurricane Tubeless wheel sets are very similar to Silvercivic's R460 build, but I think a bit lighter, as the Hurricane rims are 60gm less apiece. You could probably make that...

    Uh, external width doesn't really matter in the context of this discussion; the issue is whether a 25c tire will fit securely on a 22mm bsw (bead seat width) rim.

    I don't know the answer, but I...

    It is true that I consider the traditional road herringbone, or file, pattern together with totally treadless as "slicks," but it was my mistake that I overlooked the "no visible tread" requirement...

    I don't get the fixation on putting 28c tires on a super wide 29er MTB rim; what's the connection? Why do you think 28 is the size, and if it has anything to do with weight or aero, why are you...

    There are also clipless pedals which have a large, surrounding platform which makes them comfy for street shoe riding. See "downhill" and "freeride" MTB pedals for this type.

    The AC Argent are my eveyday wheel, and I think they're pretty badass. They are certainly somewhat aero, as they're faster on the same bike than the Ksyriums I race on, and they're very responsive...
