Well, that's an interesting comment. I've always wondered whether laced wheels flex better in the rough terrain. Maybe that's why they are on all serious dirt bikes despite the hassle of inner tubes and rim locks.

The DirtStars that came with my SuperEnduro are pretty tough, as are the stock rims on the 6 year old 520 EXC. No dents so far, and I've been on some pretty rock terrain in the past 4 weeks.

Walter, that's the second bent rim you've had this summer already, huh? Getting expensive to run your SM on dirt roads.
