    not trying to spark a flame war...just curious... why do you use aerospoke?

    the wheels are overpriced, heavy, not too aerodynamic, and outdated technology.

    yea they look awesome, but so do a ton other wheels for a fraction of the price and far more utility

    This.

    I ride my Aerospoke because it's bulletproof, easy to lock up, and I got it dirt cheap (Not as cheap as Scrod...)

    Name a few if you don't mind. I meant in the same "aerodynamic" style as the Aerospoke.

    FWIW, they are solid as **** and they sound awesome when you bomb down a hill.
