Pan-caked fat rims
Who has pan-caked a fat wheel yet?

Even a 47mm trials rim doesn't really pretzel... they usually collapse because people ground the sidewalls too thin.
I would think the spokes would definitely break long before the rim bends.
a 250 lb dude jumping/ hucking a moonlader rear wheel might destroy it. but anyone else won't. I beat the hell out of my offset rear pugs wheel this winter with zero issues, and i was doing trials/ jumping it
your 29er may float over roots and rocks, but my superlight 26 just plain floats
I tacoed a HED 45 downhill rim. 45mm wide, hemispherical cross section, 36 spokes, disc brakes.

No damage to frame or fork.
The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common
Between four sets of 65mm wide Large Marge DH rims on three and a half different bikes, total combined mileage of over 7,000—terrain varying from cargobike on street and rought trail applications all the way to traversing fast steep technical jagged rock riddled DH trails—I’ve broken three spokes; within the same timeframe I’ve destroyed four bottom brackets and three rear Shimano XT hubs. The Large Marge DH rims for sure will outlast everything else.

Waiting on the drillium Darryl crowd to pipe up.

My drilled RD's have held up fine. Minor dings from low pressure and hitting rocks or roots but nothing major.
If every person gave more than they took, this world would be a much different place.
