Shimano Yumeya for XTR

So, what you guys think about the Shimano Yumeya for XTR "concept". It seems weird as hell to me.

Do these things bling you out on the trail or make you look freddylicious ?

Click "English". Then click "XTR". Unless you like putting Dura-Ace parts on your MTB.

I think it has already been collectively decided it's for silly-spoiled rich ****** that never fall down, so they can make it all..."pretty-like".

Yeah I mean. You'd think all that gold would get pretty muddy and F'ed up after just a short ride.

That's not excessive at all. I should probably go buy XTR just so I can make it gold.
