I think they are a nice wheel, just not suited to a bruser like me.
Are you saying that the rim would flex significantly even when you are riding on the flat? That would be quite amazing.
Maybe a bit confusing here, when I mean bending - I mean buckling. The phenomenon is not so noticeable when on the bike, although can be easily detected when applying the breaks after a while. Much more noticeable when checking the bike after the ride and the wheel looks like its had a big night out with the boys at the pub and strip bars
