I’m sure someone on here was running these rims and said they felt a bit too light. Clearly they weren’t wrong...

If I could go a tenth as high as Larry Edgar goes, then I would still be blasting super high.

That's what you get for using a race only rim for freestyle.........

And for running the forbidden oil slick

That's not bad, you can true that right up!

The rim probably committed suicide. I think I'd rather commit suicide than be near a bike that colour.....

Maybe he ran the wheel stock and never tightened up the spokes...

My brand new wheel came with the entire left side super loose. I bent it enough to where it wouldnt clear my brake pads and the wheel wouldnt turn. A single poorly executed 180...It was my mistake for trusting a "hand built" wheel...

I trued it back up and tightened all the spokes and its holding. Gonna let em bed in for a while and give em another tighten.

Check the spokes before you ride...lol

I know a lot of people that don't even have a spoke wrench.

I’m pretty sure he would’ve had them tightened. But you’re right, I got a custom wheel build and the spokes were not tight at all, I wasn’t impressed.

Steve is right, that is one disgusting bike.

Any half decent wheel builder will pre stretch the spokes. It's a race only rim that probably had a massive impact

This.

Pre-stressing the spokes is one of the most important but most overlooked steps of building a good wheel.

Precisely why I got rid of that rim. I liked the look of it and rode one in the front years ago… any 360 down something over bar height made my front wheel feel like it was gonna explode

I have those rims. They get loose easily but seem to stay true when loose. I'm constantly changing spokes and truing them though.

I suppose this is as good a time as any to ask, but what is it about Hyper and Snafu that makes them the choice for the quadruple double in & out spinny dervish tailwhip folks?

Is it basically that they're just made for big park stuff. I see Hyper only makes the Logan Martin signature frame, the Wizard frame, and a bunch of bars.

So uh...what gives?
