Ask Danny Macaskill to kill your wheel, and he'll find a way.

As most know I am not much of a fan of CF but to run a bare rim seems a bit much. Actually is seems unfair and kind of dumb, since it is not the real world.

This is exactly correct.

Give them to me, Iíll kill them for you. I killed a set of Ksyriums in 300 miles.

I've wondered if I'd benefit from a carbon wheel set. This does not help my wallet's future..

"Unfair"? Not one for actually watching the videos before posting, are you?

I thought it was great. Love me some Danny MacAskill.

It would do some good for the "it's carbon, it will assplode" crowd to watch.

Seriously. I've been saving/looking for a new bike or frameset and I've been discounting a lot of the CF. I'm sure the equality of the CF and the craftsmanship go a long ways, but, it's definitely more durable than I've been imagining. Always cool to watch somebody test an object to failure, though!
