Why is it called a tacoed wheel?

Personally I think a gyroed wheel would be much tastier.

can't serve 9-10 cogs with a gyro as opposed to a taco - just not the proper etiquette.

If so, the shop would have to repair it with a gyro-scope.

So, bikes are really kept upright by the Tacoscoptic precession? That would explain why my bike wants to automatically turn into Taco He11 when I ride by one on a tour. What else don't 'THEY' want you to know???

I've seen some wheels that were actually taco-shell shaped, but I prefer the phrase, "bent horribly" with fire sauce....

Make sure you sprinkle sharp cheddar-cheese on your tacos...

Cause when it is bent in half it looks like a taco shell and every biker loves the ubiquitous post ride mexican feast.
