i've said before, the only way to be cool in my town was to have a 'dale or GT

it was spins on the LTS, and spinergys on a super-v

IMO massively uncool...too much like roadie/triathelete fare to be on any MTB.

As far as cosmetics go I'd say one sure way to kill the look of a good bike is by putting spinergys on it (or any other composite/kooky wheels).

Disc Drive the exception due to JT & JMC connections :D

Well, i always new they were a bit of a marmite thing, but i would have guessed a much closer 50:50 in the voting.

I cannot believe so many thing they are uncool :(

Awesome wheels always loved them OK I admit you are better off with spokes on the trail but spokes don't look that good :lol:

This thread has given me a laugh. :-)
uncoolest mountain bike product ever though. Ugly ugly ugly ugly. They make any bike they are on look crap. They are heavy and they break.
A product this bad should never have gone on sale. Should be consigned to the scrapheap forever. I think you get the picture.
