Follow Up on Trispoke Wheel(the carbon fiber one thats not a Spec/Hed)

Because I think Sup3reme got trashed for no reason I pulled up the old info I remembered on this wheel. Below is a link for the patent. Of particular note is the following:
1. Trispokes were made of carbon fiber and kevlar and possibly fiber glass
2. The rim depth and spoke aspect ratios directly overlapped with the Hed 3/ Specialized patent. About 50mm rim depth and spokes which varied between 2.5:1 and 4:1 depending on where you measured
3. The spokes were shaped like airfoils blunter on front and sharper in back


I know this will probably get pulled, but just thought since most of you were pretty mean to the guy you might want to get some of your facts strait.

Thanks. "Most" of us - such as I - don't even know what discussion you are referring to. Bandy slander isn't appreciated.

Per what I read in Sup3reme's post, he seems to not trust any input forwarded by C&Vers anyway, as his "make yourselves out to be fools again"????......... what's that crap all about??
Yes, we love C&V bikes and deal with "old" stuff like quill stems, non-indexed derailleurs, 144 BCD cranks, steel frames...etc.. in this forum, but many here also have extensive experience both in the C&V stuff AND the newer stuff like monocoque aero wheels and frames too, so Sup3reme shouldn't be too quick about calling posters here "fools".
Answers were forwarded to him but he did not seem to want to trust anyone here.......... then he starts insulting people.....what did he expect??
I think he didn't like his post being moved to the C&V forum to start with...maybe that's really the problem.

The thread has zero business in C&V.

In search of what to search for.
