Thing I don’t get is Nitto is cranking out silver 25.4mm handlebars like there’s no tomorrow, and almost nobody is making silver 25.4mm threadless stems. How friggin stupid is that? Not even Nitto is making them. Please spare me the “use a shim” argument. I don’t like them.
I’m told it’s all fashion. I seem to come down on the wrong side of many things aesthetically these days. I want silver racks and silver stems. The industry seems to only want to make black stems and black racks. I want black hubs. The industry only wants to make silver hubs. I want silver cross levers. The industry only wants to make black ones.
The list goes on. Obnoxious.
Oh, I’ve also decided that low spoke count wheels are fucking stupid.
That is all.
