    Should I?

    Should I buy this wheel?

    Maybe Aerospoke is cooler?

    Those wheels are notorious for their catastrophic failures,
    which is why they're no longer manufactured.

    I thought it was UCI regulations and the cost of manufacture/ weight.

    out of all the aerospoke looking wheels, those ones look like they were taken off of professor x's wheel chair. that's why they're cooler than the rest

    if you really feel like throwing away 230 bucks, send it to me. my grand cherokee needs new tires and i could really use the cash.

    the hed3 is like 2x cooler cuz its $600 whereas the aerospoke is only $300 or so.
    so the more money you want to waste the cooler you will be
