ok kinda goofy i know, but what about bikes that are puzzlers? for me it's Ellsworth. i've maybe seen 1 or 2 ever, they look like hell to me and i just don't get them. i assume they are a legit brand but when i see mention of them i kinda recoil for some reason.

I never liked the looks of the Kona Stab. I was a huge fan of their early 2000 stinky's at the time but the lines on the Kona Stab were terrible. Their new bikes are much more aesthetically pleasing. I have never owned any of these bikes so I can't comment on ride quality.

Cannondales have always struck me as non-sexy. But some people love them so what do I know?

Wrong. Always.

I thought it was about derailleurs.

^ Actually that would've been awesome. The Zerode should be out in November according to the email I received the other day. Second run will start soon afterwards

Never appealed to me either but they seem to work for some people.

Any bike available from big chain stores. Whatever they were before, the pixie dust is immediately gone.

While we're talking about this, why the hell aren't those valve cores reverse threaded? Seems like an obvious solution.

There's nothing better than an Orangina after cheating death with Digger.

Huh? So they come apart when you thread the pump head on?

Ellsworth, Cube, Mongoose (altough Akriggs vids are cool.)

Or every steep, heavy freeride bike with 180mm Totem and a 69deg head angle from a couple of years ago. Some love them out of nostalgia I guess. But compared with what's available now, they suck.

I use my old Divinci Ollie in the park 4-5 days a year. It is like riding a freight train thing weighs a ton. Would love a new DH bike but not in the budget for the amount of days I do in the park/year.

Ha! I guess that's just as bad. My Lezyne pump likes to remove the valve core when you take it off.

Transition. They're definitely white trash.

Freedom of contract. We sell them guns that kill them; they sell us drugs that kill us.

Put some Loctite on the core.
