While looking around at different rims and such I saw they talk about the wheels stalling? For example "When the yaw angle goes past 15° the aero spokes work to keep the wheel from stalling, and drag stays flat." from the hed website under the three spoke clincher.
if you're not lying, it's talking about the wheel's aerodynamic properties in crosswinds. they don't mean stall in the sense of a helicopter's blades or a plane going too slow to provide sufficient lift to stay stable... they mean wheel specific physical scenarios.
but i still think you're lying. link don't just cite vaguely.
