Spotted: Prototype High Pivot Full Suspension Bike in North Vancouver
@Chuckolicious: Why do people need a sign to tell them how to conduct themselves?

OK so the takeaway here is that people are going to do whatever they want if it serves them in some way and to assume that everyone is going to act primarily in their own self interest. If something you do has negative consequences on someone else it's probably their fault anyways. How depressing.

@cuban-b-can-blow-me: I do agree that there are worse offenders that blow up the location of secret trails, I think it is the same mentality here with this photo, and that's why this bothers me so much.

Maybe I am taking it too far, maybe I'm not, my point is just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. There are consequences to this post whether intentional by OP/PB or not. It's not like developing a bike is some top-secret mission, it's a bike. My point is that OP/PB should have enough sense to know that the developer and their marketing team have plans to release the bike at some point, and posting this photo takes some of the ooo ahhh factor out of it when it finally gets released. Prototypes go through testing, testing involves going out in the world, people are going to see the bike. You shouldn't have to go to extremes to hide it, people should respect the process and not blow the lid off before the designer intended. It really comes down to the principle of putting yourself in the other persons shoes and considering the effect it might have on them. I also don't see the reason to attack me personally, you're stirring up more controversy than there needs to be.

If you worked for years to develop something, wouldn't you want to release it on your own terms rather than have some anonymous internet fame-seeker leak it? Spy shots piss bike engineers off, and I think a large website like pinkbike should use more discretion in what they choose to post.

@davec113: The bike was asking for it (sarcasm)

You should not have taken this picture let alone posted it to the internet. It's not yours to share, it's the bike developers. It's kinda like riding an unfinished loamer, you stole those first tracks from the builder.
