Also, prudent manufacturers are waiting for the small guys to do all the experimenting and see where the pendulum swings back to determine what the correct width to make rims at. Typical really with alot of new ideas.
absolutely. but bike manufacturers haven't proven very "prudent" along the lines you suggest over the past few years. the recent fungal bloom of new standards propagated by the biggest players makes it hard to understand why they've taken a wait-and-see approach wrt to rim width
