Manufacturers need to determine who their target market is. If their market is guys who see humungoid schnoobs and think dang, I'll buy those hubs, then have at it.
But maybe they need to think that maybe they are offending some folks who may buy their stuff. Kind of like cologne and perfumes. I hate that shit and if a person wears too much, it turns me off. If a person has no scent it offends no one.
Debate? Bikes are made for riding not pushing.
