Ah, the only perpetual motion couple on the planet(hopefully), I digress, urethane sucks energy, more urethane sucks more energy, and if you think that the wheel squishes giving you more "purchase" and rebound.... multiply the energy loss by two, and then add bearings that aren't optimal, gosh, now you're going backwards.

Obviously, it seems wheels are like art, beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and if the eye thinks perpetual motion is at play, or...the moon is tooo full, let's back up, look at weight and quality of build, and weight, well, if you insist that you surf the urethane between yourself and the hub and it accelerates you, I'm thinking your eyes are influenced by a blue moon, and your opinion is suspect
