I'm all for high-end gear and am the first to remind people that looks matter but for a company which claims to be an engineering company I just find their products to be gimmicky.

As always, I'm open to correction and always try to understand reasonable objections, even if I don't agree.

To be fair, Phil does state that the aluminum lockring is for indoor, track use only.
