    This is one trippy wheel. Crank Brothers has entered the wheel market.

    Very cool and innovative design. If it works well, they will set a new standard.

    That is wild. Check the detailed shot of how the spokes are attached.



    Edit: attached not threaded

    Here's a pic of the hub.

    Are there plans for a more FR/DH oriented version.

    If we ever find out what the difference between FR/DH is.

    Well, it's really just very similar to--though cooler looking than--Rolf's paired-spoke design. So, Rolf already set the standard, these guys just honed it or, at the very least, did it their own way.

    Only Ti Candies? Really? I guess the Smarties are becoming the new lower end Candies.
