From what I read a while back they don't sponsor any pros. Wheel sponsorship is much more of a thing now. They are still really spendy and can't be convincingly re-branded as someone else's product.

Plus old ass design.

I think catdrew is saying 'relevant' in terms of 2004 being when 24" or 650c were considered relevant in terms of giving some kind of speed advantage, in peepantscycling.

Yeah, think we're talking size.

Old ass design to be sure, but the LWs/ADAs are still pretty fucking baller. LW has some pretty cool shit hovering around 1000g/set.

No

They are still the shit

Full composite wheels will always be better than spoked versions, another great wheel is the mavic ccu. Lightweight is like assos, they don't sponsor pro teams because they don't have to. There is nothing to prove, no wool to be pushed over eyes. The product speaks for itself.

First of all, the gif is sped up. And secondly, that's not that bad. Yeah its a tight fit but because it's two trams you don't have to worry about getting pinched, they can't move laterally. I'd much rather do that than go between two busses.

I see it as him poking fun at cyclists and himself with a wink at the camera. Like Don Garlits doing a pass with a nitro methane hemi lawnmower and a parachute strapped to his ass.

Ha!

Back in the day the word was all the Nike stuff was actually being made by DMT. Wouldn't be surprised if that's still the case.

I could see about three places that picture could go but the reason I started this thread was to have somewhere for innane shit like this. I waited a good week hoping someone else would post it somewhere.

If someone on here did it, I'd probably like it. Since it was done by someone I don't know, they're a fucking idiot.

Recently discovered that this site was still live. It heavily influenced my early riding while I poured over it in my little room in the gov docs department of the GSU library.
