Specialized Launches $999 Carbon Hotwalk for Toddlers
Imagine defending it as a valuable product, rather than a gauche little bauble for ones over-entitled offspring.

Pinkbike Poll: Wild or Mild - What Makes A Bike Look Great?
@tobiusmaximum: I'm not that fussed about it, much of what I wrote before was meant as good humoured hyperbole (or hyper-bile), use of caps is a honeypot :D I think this sort of behaviour is very much part of human nature. It's much like folk comparing their 4x4s and Porsche's in the golf club car park. Some of those people, like you, will 'just like cars', and some will be identifying the status symbols and forming a pecking order. Mountain biking is very similar, including the what-you-drove-to-get-here part. Compare it to something like skateboarding or BMX though and the tech doesn't matter so much, there is less interest in the machine and more in the human capability, I think I prefer that on the whole as I assume most people go biking to aquire and hone skills, not categorise or be categorised on their possessions. Also I've paid for a bike, an advertising deal isn't implicit in that so I'd prefer less branding in general.

Pinkbike Poll: Wild or Mild - What Makes A Bike Look Great?
This. But not just applicable to tyres. I don't wanna wear a dayglo fucking logo. I don't want my bike plastered with fucking logos, the graphics won't make my riding less shit. IMO all the branding makes mtb so/too much about status and this leads to dumb fucking prejudice, watch the behaviours when you roll up to a group of riders you don't know, the bike check is immediate, you are being quantified before anyone has seen you ride. As many videos on PB and elsewhere prove, a shit bike can be ridden really fucking well. Pick a colour you like but DEBADGE NOW!

Easily done in Greece though, waste pipe diameter was never meant to cope with the amount of shit roll the british use / stockpile.
