Lol, aww mr grumps. You didnt spoil my day. I am constantly Happy just ask Ian.

Bassically the problems with Alcantara wheels is sweaty/greasy hands. Not reccomended for those peeps. As the wheel goes, Technical term. manky. however with a bit of maintenance they stand for 10yrs plus.

Also Jeffy pie, PERCHLOROETHYLENE is reccomended for cleaning. Which I know a thing or two about.

But, in fairness I had already decided to keep the Leather M wheel as a back up. Just to be on the safe side.
