    Only messengers can run alleycat spokecards? Clothespins are too 4rth grade-ish. I'll try tape or glue I guess.

    ...and clearly you are ignorant.
    Spoke cards come from a variety of different events, none of which have anything to do with being a messenger. Sometimes they are even for, I know its ridiculous, decoration. I hope you dont have anything on the walls of wherever you live unless you are a painter, photographer or artist, and I hope you dont have furniture unless you are a furniture maker, or heaven forbid plants unless you are a botonist.

    who cares if he's a messenger or not? metric tons of people put spoke cards in their wheels these days.

    that said, if you wheels don't pinch the card where the spokes meet, then don't put them in your wheel, or build a 36 spoke 3x

    Well my obama cards arrived yesterday, that's when I noticed the spokes don't touch where they cross, and I've had those wheels for ~2 years. Also, should I run obama brakeless? What is the best obama skid pattern?

    why would you waste money on ellipses only to stick a bunch of pieces of paper between the aerodynamic bladed spokes??

    tryhard.

    I made a spoke card the other day. It says in big font:

    f***
    spokecards

    That sums up my opinion of the spokecard craze.
    And, yes, I did actually make that.
