    There's no reason not to *trust* Ti spokes, just no appreciable benefit for the ridiculous cost.

    i looked into Ti spokes quite a bit once. not factoring in price, i think a lot of negativity towards them centered around it just simply not having ideal characteristics for a spoke. maybe it was something about stretching at the threads. i know it doesn't really make sense, i am not recalling it right. sorry i cannot be more specific...point is i just remember them not being that great.

    Apparently you couldn't see the obvious sarcasm in BMichaelX's response. Noob.

    edit: You're right, MX. Titanium has a lower modulus of elasticity than steel (I'll compare 6AL/4V titanium to 304 stainless steel, both of which Marwi use for spokes).

    6AL/4V Titanium
    Modulus of Elasticity: 16500 ksi

    304 Stainless Steel
    Modulus of Elasticity: 28000-29000 ksi

    Calling someone a "******" and a "noob" is hardly sarcasm. You're trying way to hard.

    That would have been funny if I hadn't heard it in the third grade.

    "Fialed". The typo was a nice touch with your failed attempt at an insult. Give up before you fall any further behind.

    And, for the record, I wouldn't be in college if I hadn't gotten into the fourth grade.

    edit: Nice edit there, bucko.

    I feel like I'm being "attacked" by a one-legged puppy here; I'm not sure if I should be laughing or feeling sad. Expatriate, if you're moved into your place in Utah and can read this, feel free to put him down. I'll pay the fees for the vet.

    Hmm. So you dont care about the life of a puppy because it has one leg. Your just like your mother. She didn't really care about you did she?

    Well, seeing as how that's a multiple part question, I'll answer the questions separately.

    Your first question, 'though disguised as a statement, questions whether or not I care about a one-legged puppy's life. However, that needs not even be asked, because I already stated that I do care about it; it's not explicit, but is rather implied. You see, in my eyes, putting a helpless animal down is akin to euthanasia; in doing so, you are ending the animal's pain. It's not so much a question of whether or not I care as it is one of ethics and morality, and my view on that matter is that it is far more compassionate to cease a life of pain and discomfort than it is to allow it to continue.

    Your second question, about my mother, questions whether or not she cared about me, after stating that I'm just like her. I'll address the latter portion first: I am not just like my mother; I have six inches on her, a penis, and a beard, and that's just the tip of the iceberg. Also, you phrase your question as if my mother is gone, deceased, even. Well, you can rest assured that neither is true. My mother is alive and well, living at home with myself, my brother, and my sister. To address the former portion, it is a well known fact that my mother does, in fact, care about me. If she didn't, I would not be living in her home, and she would not being paying my college tuition, among other things.

    "I have six inches on her, a penis"

    I would hope she doesnt have a dink.

    You never stated what shape the puppy was in, and if the puppy was born with three legs, he is obv a pirate.

    I like how I can come up with this wonderful, elaborate, essay-of-a-response to his infantile comments, and all he can do is interpret a phrase the wrong way ("six inches on her" is in reference to height), mke a dick joke, and make a lame response about how (even though I specifically stated that the puppy had a single leg) a three-legged dog is a pirate.
