    Not exactly a new idea. Nike's done it along with plenty of others.
    but I'm sure people will buy it beacause you don't see them all the time, they look cool, and most it would seem care way more about looks over performance. Overall it's a stupid lacing for many reasons. But when you see a chance to make some skrilla why not?

    I always wanted a set of those of my 84 GTI. I miss highschool

    But seriously, CX will be the new trend.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    yea but a set of RS like that will run you at least double the cost of a 84 GTI. but i can relate. also guilty of driving a volkswagen with wheels worth more than the car.
