Yeah sorry. It was the locking nut and axle thread used to mount the RD. Don’t give them any bright ideas about derailleur threads!

Ha! Sploog, runny shit, whatever you wanna call it, it sucks and is one of the shittiest things about tubeless.
I'm not sure about how broadly spread this was, but Norco did have a different thread on their earlier models with a UDH (I believe it was the Optic, maybe the Sight, too?). I haven't come across others but it hasn't seemed widespread.
It sucks when manufacturers use a new hanger design for every freaking model in their range, some (looking at you YT) make several that look blooming identical, but aren't. Argh!
Presta valves drive me nuts because of their short lifespan now that we use spunk to help seal our tires. If schrader valves prevent that, I'd be in but I somehow doubt it. I've been contemplating going back to ghetto tubeless because from memory, I had less issues with it but I'd be surprised if the valve suddenly didn't fill with goo.
The weight balance Cam speaks of is something to consider too, and something many don't. I've been told by some much smarter bike folks that it makes a rather large difference (at least for high speeds, which again, Cam pointed out).
It hasn't been front-page news for a couple of years now but there were quite a few World Cup DH teams using weights to balance their wheels.
Just what I was thinking as I read through these comments. Thanks to everyone helping with suggestions based on their sweat management experiences. It's great to see the community step in to help each other like this!
Calling my friend, Andy. There are some great sweat management options being discussed here.
The Ryders glasses I’ve tried were really quite good, too and the only thing to offer similar clarity to the last couple of pairs tested from Oakley. Ryder’s Fyre lens is quite special.
Great point! Taking the eyewear with you is such a good idea. It would be horrible to get home with a new lid only to discover it doesn’t fit with your glasses.
Interesting. Has what you’ve noticed with replacements since COVID or does it pre-date that?
So good. I didn't want it to end. We need more!
