"That begs the question" = []( I've run carbon and AL rims on two very similar bikes on the same trails, same tires, same pressure, same rider, etc... The AL rim were KIA'd due to dents and the carbon rims are going strong. Cost of Light Bicycle carbon rims was double that of the AL rims. So within a couple years of use they'd be cost neutral. Carbon rims were lighter and no issues with them being too stiff. Currently my main bike has AL rims because that's what came with it. I'm going to ride the heck out of them. If I was building up new rims I'd probably go with another set of Light Bicycle carbon hoops again.
