    I actually said it was a Hot. Lol Looks like somebody got his feelings hurt and forgot to read the rest. Apparently you didn't read the part before hand either which says "Whether that was the case or not". I understand the heritage and general greatness of the M3, once again, I said that was Hot too. I even like the way you staged it. But if you think you're going to debate your way out of posting the car with the number 2 advertisement spot (funding) and the bike with the number 1 advertisement spot and claiming like you didn't buy it because "they" told you to is as laughable as your reading comprehension.

    You're right I, I switched to a not.

    BTW: "Me too" is not an expression of degradation , but it is widely recognized to mean top selling/advertised product.

    ^Like the frame, not really feeling the build, nor the mistmatched stem/post.

    Still, hot.

    So, WARM......until bigger pictures.

    Nevermind. I found the big picture. HOT, but the handlebar angle is funny.

    Those appear to be Topolino wheels. The spokes are carbon/kevlar:

    I'm sorry - you'll have to try a dialect of American English for me to understand your question.

    Knob = Knobular. To rephrase, What is the point of the knob on the spoke? This is something you see on commuter bikes with reflectors, I am curious as to the purpose of the hideous bulge on each spoke.

    What knob are you talking about? Do you mean the end of the spoke where it goes to threads for wheel truing?

    ^^^ I had those "knobs" on my spokes when I was a kid...but they slid back and forth and were different colors.
