Ode To China

 "It is strongly recommended for all rocky mountain bikes like jumping bikes, downhill mountain bikes, all mountain bike."

Sounds sketchy, yes. But what is the difference between this rim and the rim from Ibis or Easton(I know, Mexico) or Specialized or Giant or Stans or any other domestically created illusion of familiarity and security in a logo stamped on the same third world built product??? It's Magic! That's what it is. 

Go China(insert any other third world enlsaved work force manufacturer here) go.
Defy your American Corporate Overlords and come straight for U.S..

  1. I'm digging the Ebay rim trend. Sort of, there are some jenky products coming out that don't have a company logo tied to them for liability... Otherwise though be smart and find a good manufacturer. Its all the same. Or buy Enve. Thats not the same.
