    No shame...

    Was just at the local performance picking up my new Kurt Kinetic and there was a guy with his bike asking about carbon bars. Well the bike was the following (according to the stickers):

    Pinarello Dogma
    Campagnolo Bora Ultra carbon wheels
    Shimano 105

    That wasn't even the kicker. The Boras were normally laced unlike the traditional Campy lacing on of course 105 no less. Then to top it all off when a random guy who clearly knew it was a Chinarello asked him where he got the frame the dude told him that he "special ordered it from Italy". No shame...

    How does one lace a 32 hole 105 hub to a 21 hole Bora rim? Or am I not understanding the wheel details? Are you saying Bora stickers on random 105 wheel build?

    The wheels were open-mold carbon rims with Bora stickers all around it.

    I thought by the title of this thread it was about something else! And yes, I have no shame!
    I am just a spoke in a broken wheel!

    Yeah, not possible. You can do it on a 28 hole rear by lacing 14:7, triplet lacing with every other hole skipped on the NDS of the hub and every fourth hole skipped on the rim. But the front is still a problem.

    Not "open-mold". Fake Boras.

    "Open mold" is one of the most misused, confused and abused terms in the 41. You're better off not using it at all.

    I am fine with you having that opinion.

    But open mold carbon rims are not mutually exclusive from fake Boras.

    I thought when you left the closure off the whole wheat bread, you got "open mold". Have I been misusing that all these years? Next you'll tell me a closed face hot turkey sandwich is not "carb on".

    Ah, so your issue is that you make the mistake of thinking when people use the term 'open mold' on BF in relation to carbon parts they are incorrectly shortening the technique of 'open molding' instead of using a common description of molds that are owned by the manufacturer and available for production runs. You should get over that.
