    'The' Wireless with Matching Wheels?

    Or should we call it cableless?

    Technically nice. Aesthetically a little gaudy for my tastes.

    A cable is made of multiple wires. That's the definition of cable whether mechanical or electrical. So if there are no wires, there can be no cables. I'd go with wireless, which is also has the meaning of communication by radio, which is the case here.
    Do the math.

    Cableless

    When I pulled the wheels out of the box, I kind of seconded guessed the design. At that point I had no choice, but to grow to like it. Lol.

    Bit much for me, with the matching spokes on a lairy paint job. I prefer a small splash of colour, on black.
