Lightweight Factory




















I can't read French that well but the pictures tell a story- the most tech. wheels in cycling (one spoke is supposedly strong enough to pull a truck) are made in some very low tech conditions using pretty low tech solutions- let's true them with a block of wood on a stick and sell them for 2000 Euro a pop! I like that.
