Ask a mechanic - especially later in the day - after he's tried to get a couple crappy parts to work properly. Virtually every day of the week we work on a bike or

censor our thoughts and are happy to unpersuade people from buying that same crap - or yesterdays - or last months
PITA parts. Honesty - we didn't invent it - it doesn't work to pick up girls - but we spew it daily regarding the perks and jerks in the bike world.
