    Hmmm, so this could be a set of rims that came even before those early ones I saw that had the dimples. That's good to know. I guess I'll ride them and see what happens.

    Wow, I never thought of it that way, but you're right. I've seen pictures now that even the first generation ones had a circle drilled in as indicator, so that's probably not what these are. I...

    Yeah, but couldn't the user just make sure the motor isn't on until after the check (like right before the race)? I'd have to imagine there are remote controls for these sorts of things, but then I...

    I prefer the retro inspired one, but the curves on the fork just don't do it for me. It looks like a bend halfway up rather than a true curve the way forks should be done. Not quite as good as the...

    You don't want to see the bags I use. Much bigger and floppier (converted WWII gas mask bags), but super convenient to hold just about anything I'd want in them and with leather straps from toe...

    at the very least I'd rotate the bars a bit and go silver seatpost and stem. Oh and see if I couldn't find a chrome fork, but that's just me. I love a thinner fork with a sexy curve to it, and you...
