I hate all those types of wheels.
Ugly, tacky, dysfunctional and {allegedly} dangerous.
And ugly again.

= Eternally uncool.

(although I used similar reasons to vote "COOL" for the Trimble :lol:)

I voted uncool, though my wife is insisting on running a set on a bike I'm building up for her :roll:

So I've now voted uncool four times in a row for the cool wall...that's not very cool of me :?

if we are voting specifically on spinergy wheels, then my vote is "uncool".

i do however thing some of other brand/style composite wheels are "cool" on CERTAIN bike builds. but i'd have to agree that they usually don't suit most bikes though.
