Opinion - Thinkers, Tinkerers, and Inventors
What you say there Mike I think holds so much truth to a lot of people: that the marketing departments are shooting themselves in the foot by how they present their ideas. There are so many genuinely great ideas that do improve our experiences as we ride; recently narrow wide chainrings, clutch mechs etc, and I think it is fair to say those genuinely great, practical, applicable, non-proprietry ideas are universally accepted and rarely require wrapping by the marketing dept. Yet many people do take issue (maybe too hastily) with the apparently never ending stream of acronyms and trademarks registered to solve problems we didn't know existed and the ways they are sold to us. It has led (many) people to drastically reduce the amount of slack given to the marketing departments. And that is a shame for both the engineers striving to make everything even better and the consumers who are becomming disillusioned with the industry. In many walks of life, you know something has gone too far when it becomes subject to parody. Transition Bikes' marketing methodology should be a warning to the rest of the industry it may be time to think a little about how they communicate to the consumers.

GoPro Contest Winner Announced - Who Won The $20,000?
Sawnoff666 posted this great comment below, however it maybe deserves I be up here, so copied and pasted here: go down and prop his comment not this one if you agree. Here's an idea. Open the competition again. Let everyone vote like was supposed to happen. GoPro put up another $20,000 to save whatever is left of their integrity. Let the real winners win. Who's with me?

OneUp 44 Tooth X-Cog - Review
"he wasn't shy about bringing up industry standards and regulations" Sorry Monsieur Riffle, industry what? From where my plethora of frames, components and rims sit, I fail to see many of those things these days.
