My DT Swiss freehub just exploded

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

No not really, as I understand the issues on hookless and pressures on road wheels, but car rims being so much wider, car tires being so much beefier, and generally for the vast majority of cars, tire pressures are going to be 35 psi or less, so magnitudes less chance of having issues. So to me auto hookless and road bike hookless are not comparable.
