Wrong. Crap. Break. Classic form over function. Look particularly crappy on an MTB. The uncoolest wheel ever. :D

Expensive, yes.

Practical, no.

Well, in retrobiking terms that means they're cool, right?

Desperately, tragically and irredeemably uncool.


That about covers it! :lol: :lol:

They are garbage. The type of garbage that the fat middle aged man with the blinged out BMW buys and then just drives around with it on his car.

Spinergy = Rot, so UNCOOL! :lol:

i have to sit on the fence with spinergy wheels a little bit :lol:

i like the new ones with PBO spokes but we're talking the 4 spoke ones.

+ve reasons

look cool on the right bike (the klein is a very good example)
instantly recognisable
weird
different
lusted after back in the day


-ve reasons

look horrendous on most bikes
instantly recognisable
weird
different
lusted after back in the day by people with too much money and no taste!
4 spokes look awful
the spins always looked cooler and were cheaper, but should only be used on a GT
but the nail in the coffin is the reliability, there was none.

i think that list makes my vote "uncool"

:D my 2p
