Hah, yeah certainly.
I live by Alcoa (city) and it was a big stink when they changed the name Some folks even questioned if the city needed to change it's name too.

the plastic end caps have developed a bit of a wobble which makes them pretty noisy.
Im considering getting some aluminium or stainless steel end caps machined and pressed in as I like them and also like the mag resistance unit for interval training.
I have a 50, 51 and 52 tooth chainrings and 13 through 17 cogs and a 12 on the way so have a spread from about 120 Watts through to 600 Watts at 100 rpm. I only use the fork stand when using tribars which is not often.

Yeah, I find it's a pretty good system. No problems with the rollers yet for me, knock on wood. I use the fork stand anytime I'm using the mag unit.
