New Marketing Direction for Pinkbike New Marketing Direction for Pinkbike
It has come to our attention that Pinkbike users are predominately male in gender with a ratio of 99%. To correct this unbalance, our new marketing department has taken affirmative action to make Pinkbike more appealing to the feminine user. The next 6 months are going to be exciting, as Pinkbike goes back to it's roots, and gets in touch with it's questionable name, and yes, sells ponies in it's famous online store. We do not think this new look will impact male appeal because after all, pink is the new black. Happy surfing.

SRAM kitted 2006 Iron Horse MkIII Team: Ultimate All-Mountain Bike SRAM kitted 2006 Iron Horse MkIII Team: Ultimate All-Mountain Bike
SRAM has been busy shoppers for the past couple of years! First they purchased Sachs, which added to their drivetrain ‘bag-o-tricks”. Then they jumped to RockShox’s rescue and purchased them. This purchase gave SRAM a complete suspension department with top notch engineers. Third purchase was Avid, which added a solid line of rim and disc brakes to their artillery. And then last but not least, in 2004 they teamed up with Truvativ, which added even more “bling” and variety to their already solid componentry lineup.
