      Neat idea. Wonder if it requires the use of specific tires? Couldn't imagine 145psi clincher beads staying put...

        The problem is always going to the rim, to keep it 110% round. Imagine the damage it would do to you're hands if wizzing down hill and the joints were just one tenth of a mm out, it would be like putting your hand in bacon slicer.
