    Yup. "Ok boomer" is simply an expression to mock someone for acting like an old fart.

    To be fair, I usually don't jump on technology when it comes out. Some technology I eventually embrace, other technology I shun forever. But Freddy and Notvintage take this to an extreme.

    I've always thought Mavic made junky products after a pair of shoes I had from them started to fall apart after 3 months of riding.

    I'm 230lbs and ride a 1400g wheelset on easy singletrack on my gravel bike and have hit gopher holes so hard my hands instantly went numb and didn't even knock them out of true. Mavic wheels shouldn't explode from a pothole. Granted I'm on 45mm (front) and 40mm (rear) tires to cushion the blows...
