Team Robot, I salute you
If you enjoy satirical bike industry bile, you’ll appreciate this.
Many of Team Robot’s criticisms could just as easily be levelled at road component manufacturers. I’m looking at you, Mavic.

Functionally, there’s nothing wrong with these products – at least in the short term – but to the mechanically-minded their inherent disposability is philosophically offensive.
BRB, hubs don’t polish themselves.
