I cannot wait until they introduce new wheel wingnuts.

The quick release is clearly a fad.

I still wish there was a thumbs up button on here.

Wingnuts went out of style because of horizontal drops. Now that we're all using vertical drops, they would work.

The disadvantage of wingnuts to QR levers is that they give two sharp points to impale your knee on.

well, (usually) blunt points to impale your knee on, which is probably worse

I've been really critical of Riv for some of there extreme idiosyncrasies of late but with that said, I saw an Appaloosa in the wild today and I was impressed.

It even had the long chainstays but still looked great and now I want one!

I like to see anything lugged; old or new it has its place but not the only place. I hope rivbk hangs on. I have an old quickbeam on the way to me and I can't wait to see it.
