H+Son: What's changed since the rim break?

H+Son: What's changed since the rim break?

I've been researching a bit about H+sons (Formation Face/SL42 in particular), and of course came across the "exploded" rim in 2008. What have they changed since then? Any other problems since?

Sorry if this has been answered, I couldn't find it.

People learned that they arent a rim to perform tricks on.

My understanding was that the rim that failed had nothing to do with tricks, just skidding. I'm planning on skidding on my bike, and going off the occaisional curb. Wrong rims for me, then?

I think it'd be ridiculous to not change something about the product after something like that happened, right? otherwise they just **** over their own business

They are made in sweatshops by children now. I don't always buy bicycle lips but when I do I buy aerosp0kks. Buy Amaracan.
