    Ive ridden dozens of wheel sets from about 2200 down to about 1250... I don't know that I could tell the difference of a hundred grams, but 200 to 300 is definitely noticeable... I have a few...

    Love the specs... Never heard of them before... Can a typical wheel tech repair? The spoke, hub and bearing tech is interesting.
  4. High-end / lightweight aluminum wheels... Soliciting your opinion

    I have recently damaged a couple sets of relatively light carbon wheels. Not really looking to rehash that discussion (though I will try and address any inquiries)... Suffice it to say, given my...

    well, I crossed my 250,000 foot goal on Saturday doing a canyon called Big Cottonwood. This canyon is pretty wide and you can get away with less braking, so I moved to this canyon a few weeks ago,...

    true... but how much hotter is the surface and how much quicker does it shed the heat... AND that actually worsens the problem by driving the peak temps up to a higher temperature, we run a greater...

    It would be interesting to see the results of a more accurate simulation as you outline... I am surprised wheel manufacturers haven't done this (maybe they have).

    I would think we could use a set...

    on the pulse vs. ride the brakes, I still am not convinced of any advantages... If the riders mass is constant and the hill represents "x" potential energy and you...

    huh? Isn't slowing down a subset of stopping?

    when I am coming down at 40 and approach a tight hairpin, I slow down... Not sure how I can avoid that.

    I hear you... But if there is a concern, I think the manufacturer needs to clearly set the limit. Spoke count isn't as much of a concern to me... I have 2 different sets of Easton's with lower spoke...
