The Pcad Good Schwagkeeping Seal of Approval

Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

Are you a compensated endorser or a "random voice off the street?"

Nice wheels.

I, too, have a marvelous set (OK, he built the rear and supplied the front rim) of Psimet.com® Powertap wheels. I rode them to a maximum speed of 56.2 mph down Hogpen Gap this past weekend, and they did not explode. May I join you in shilldom?

Just curious, why'd you switch to such similar equipment? Just didn't like the wired version?

My goal is to have 100 Psimet.com® Shills on this thread by 5PM today.

Don't let me down Weenies.

I was really pleased (a bit surprised actually) with how the 404 clinchers ride, feel, handle, brake etc. Outstanding wheels. They even climb pretty good considering their heavier weight with that Ptap. That Alchemy front hub is a thing of simple beauty, I can see why Rob uses them. One of the nicer hubs I've ever seen.

Another satisfied Psimet.com® Customer.

The outcome of rue is never final nor predictable.

It merely lurks and looms like S. Palin in politics.

"Shill" can also be used pejoratively to describe a critic who appears either all-too-eager to heap glowing praise upon mediocre offerings, or who acts as an apologist for glaring flaws. In this sense, they would be an implicit "shill" for the industry at large, possibly because their income is tied to its prosperity.
