I'm not disagreeing with you. You are right. The cost efficiency is my only problem. I understand that it's part of the main points that make a project feasible but cost efficiency is also a point of view depending on perspective. I'm not an expert, ... more »

According to IstongKowldPaRin on Mtbr.com forums. "I've used pillar spokes on my previous wheelset (i19 + fomula ss hubs). The spokes are good but the aluminum nipples included in the box are fragile. Change out the spokes for brass or stainless and ... more »

I'm not wrong. You just aren't smart enough to see the potential. Downhill and Freestyle MTB can put just as much stress on the spokes as BMX does. If someone took the time to already engineer a spoke to handle that kind of stress while being light then ... more »

Even their Titanium Straight Gauge spokes have the same breaking strength as many of their other spokes and the Titanium ones say BMX specific on it. So if one will work with a snap rate of X and if the other has the same snap rate X then I should be ... more »

Profile Racing's target consumer is racers, what are you smoking? They are only what they are now because of racing. That's like saying American doesn't like guns. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about. Also it's called false advertising ... more »

Because that is what reading, cross referencing, making inferences and math is for. If results and scenarios can be replicated then they must be true. If the quality of a product is measured on a few constraints and those constraints have their own quantitative/quantifiablness ... more »

I don't think any of you looked at the website so here is some copypasta. For nearly 30 years, Pillar has been pioneering spoke development throughout the world. With specialist manufacturing operations in Taiwan, coupled to the latest research and development ... more »

LMFAO I thought I had some respect for you, but you really are a vengeful person. All I want is for you all to see that these spokes are legit the best spokes on the market. I've presented facts, comparisons, sources, and real results. You are such a ... more »

I did do my research. You're opinion is welcomed but maybe your life could be better if you weren't so negative. What if these are the best spokes in the world? The risk is worth the reward, especially with supporting data. If you had a basic understanding ... more »

If I wanted the straight gauge then yeah by all means I could order it right now and cut it to size, but I want another one of their products they offer. Nice try. Collin_McClenahan You are right that the butted spokes aren't feasibly cuttable and rethread-able, ... more »

Nothing wrong with DT's but just because it's not well known doesn't mean Pillars are bad. Do you know the Muffin Man? Big Foot? Cthulhu? They're the best at what they do, but not a lot of people have heard of them, seen them, or read their reviews personally. ... more »

First, I already knew that they were only available overseas because I looked to see where Pillar is based out of; Taiwan. Second, those aren't 187mm Rainbow Ceramic Nanometer Titanium Plated Stainless Steel PSR TB 2015 Spokes . find me 36 of those and ... more »

Okay, not a problem. The Titanium spokes available on Dan's Comp weigh 4.3oz for 36h/185mm. The PSR TB 2015 weigh 3.976oz at 36h/187mm. Let's even the playing field. 4.3oz divided by 36 is ~.11944. ~.11944 divided by 185mm is ~.000645. ~.000645 times ... more »

You are ignorant; when you say that spokes that're too long have no use that is pure ignorance. Understand logic first before you speak. These are the best spokes on the market based off facts, any doubt is also considered textbook ignorance. And bmxsteve99 ... more »

The question is more of a statement about finding enough people that would buy these spokes so that maybe our collective interest would be enough for the manufacture to give a shit and make our batch. As for the spokes being too long you guys must not ... more »

We need to get someone to order these in bulk. They are legit. The only downside is that you have to buy them in bulk and they aren't cheap. They are so legit that I can't even get a direct price. I could only find one place that had them. Yet they're
