Next up on the vote are Spinergy wheels. If you need to be specific we'll vote on the older 4 spoked 'rev x' design....

Here are a few images to get you going.

Didn't even need to read the argument, seriously uncool. Definite school boy error if there ever was one. This encompasses all mag wheels. If you must, go deep rim and/or disc drive

Totally dangerous. Theres a site somewhere detailing how they literally explode.

Spin one up and stick your arm in....

Are you people nuts! I've been trying to find a clean set of these for ages as they're as cool as it gets. In the end I found a set of NOS Spinergy Spox and settle for them, I suppose you gonna try and tell me they're not cool either!
