Strive vs. Strive: EWS Bike Setup With Justin Leov and Joe Barnes
@mikekazimer, you nailed it when you wrote: "I found the differences and similarities between the bikes to be very interesting, and well worth writing about." So did we. Several months (years?) ago we thought that the small nuances between bikes/setups were fascinating, and brainstormed a way to capture that fascination and bike nerd-stoke in an article. The result of which was Bike vs. Bike - a feature we've run many times in the past year. When I saw your piece pop up, the similarities between what you created and what we've previously published were too close to ignore: - You pit one rider against another, specifically to talk about their respective bike setups - The side-by-side photo layout carries a resemblance - You embed an audio recording of a chat with the riders - Even the name is oddly similar I trust you can see where I'm coming from... Just as you guys do, we bust our asses off over at Vital to create cool content. It can sting a little when others latch onto feature ideas, article topics, video formats, etc that we were the first to execute. But then again, I suppose great minds do think alike. Let's just do it with some mutual respect.
