    i also favor the titanium handrims. pricey, though. however, as JenR said, the feel is nice, and they hold up great.

I live at the beach and the sand is very sticky to the rubbery surface. Also, when I'm going downhill and braking, the flexrim get's very warm in my hands! Does this happen with natural fit's too?
      Recently, the finish on the NaturalFit oval component was changed for a third time. While the finish is still flat black, the new surface is smoother than the previous version and almost as smooth as my original "glossy blacks". This should reduce heat buildup under sustained braking. The set I noticed recently came in on a new Flight Ultra Light. I don't know if they are widely available at this point in time

          i think all thing that have pros have conns .i have 4 wheelsets one spinergy lx with flexrims .iam very positive about them .pros no dirty hands better propelling more to hold on .yes if you get downhill the get hot in your hands of breaking .squeeking not yet but to those that have squeeking of the spokes try to put them tighter after a wihle all wheel spokes need to be ajusted again.now the winter is beginning i hope my hands arnt going to get so cold also .if wet still good grip

            Just to get it out there The new Round Betty Dino 12-spoke wheel is rated for 350pnds and 18 degree of camber and we have had no issues of creaking. They are also compatible with Natural fit handrims.
