Circling back to ‘_From CushCore FAQ: "CushCore is not intended to be a run-flat tire_"’ Of course they don’t recommend it. I imagine more than anything, it’s about the lowest common denominator. Some dude would be expecting them to replace his egg-shaped wheels after a top to bottom full-speed run of a WC DH course with 0psi. Another example of this is a number of bike designers I’ve talked to about dual-crown compatibility on their long-travel ‘single crown only’ big bikes. The issue has nothing to do with frames being strong enough for the forces of a d-c fork, the main issue that comes up is folks not running their fork bumpers properly (or just not running them) and then denting/breaking their frame.  It’s a lot cheaper and easier to say “no dual-crown forks” than it is to design in integrated bumpers or manage JRAs.
