    We'll have to start over I guess.

    Derailleur hangers.
    DH-'Oh18 is next! Derailleur hangers will become a standard much like iscg-Oh5

    Because 90's are SO FUCKING In FASHION NOW.

    These things were repellent back in the day.

    They still do.

    My favorite from the trispoke people:

    "We see ourselves in the same mold as a Tesla or an iPhone in this manner; in two years time, we are aiming for people to look at spokes and consider them to be the odd-looking wheels. Just consider how the mobile phone looked before the iPhone! Yes, there were other touch-screen devices out there already, but they were ugly and ill-considered affairs. A decade later and you’ll struggle to even find an old-fashioned device anymore, such is the ubiquity of the touchscreen. Simply put, our aim is to be considered entirely normal, and people will look at a spoked wheel with curiosity."

    But there has been rims for bikes for years. But the standard is still spokes for a reason, they just work.

    Actually, reality is mundane enough.

    Mike Vandeman is an elderly gentleman who makes up his own fake research to discredit mountainbikers as a legitimate user group because he doesn't like them. And he got arrested for cutting a bike rider with a saw a few years ago and lost his job at AT&T because of it.

    And he's still doing this shit.............:rofl:

    And he's been doing this shit since the early 90's. He's a certifiable nut case. My fear is that he does ego search and finds this thread. :panic: :panic:

    It's december on a bike site and you live at elevation, with two dry weather weeks in the forecast, with the high country already snowed out. WTF else you doing?

    So we see ourselves in the same mold as a company or a product? Maybe I'm a dog and maybe I'm a smell? Makes sense. Needs more words like Quantum in their press relese bs. Maybe a Deepak Chopra review.
