Ted just picked up a nude carbon aerospoke. Despite the bad press, there is definitely a ride improvement, heads will turn and make your bike look a whole lot less stock not to mention how iconic the aerospoke is for the whole scene. However, they are a theft magnet; you will find yourself carrying around two locks. Also in the windy cherwell valley, there is the problem of getting blown out in front of traffic, If you manage to pick up a painted one, they chip easily which makes resale a bitch, so we'd recommend doing as Ted did and going nude.
Pick one up if you can.
If you've got an aerospoke or another carbon-based wheel, send us a picture! Peace.
