    Well..I watched the video 3 times and the pilot got the trike really moving, but only a couple of times in his highest cog (don’t know what chainring he was in, but he was certainly spinning pretty fast at times and covering long I would suppose he was stressing his gear pretty good).

    I would say that this test was most certainly conclusive in that the wheel showed no indication of warping or flexing at any time, during any speed and under all application of road stress. Other than simulating the stresses on static test equipment, I don’t know what other kind of conclusion you could draw.
