Oh dear no.

But composite wheels on a Mountain Bike are like beards on women.

not because i own a pair, but because they look ubercool! probably the coolest looking mtb wheels ever!
come one, i thought retrobike was all about the aesthetics! don't tell me you don't like them cos they are not functional or don't perform, cos this way all retrostuff isn't compared to what's on the market today, especially when we talk about wheels and weights !

i totally like them, especially when they are moving

and by the way, the ones braking up, where the road ones(28'') not the 26"!

UBERCOOL!


ps: the spinergy's turn way more heads than any other wheels i've ever ridden, for the uninitiated the clockwork looks much cooler than the bruto, and i get that very often!
