Well, the technology isn’t working…

Can’t upload photo’s , but the key points of interest are bold new graphics, a total lack of vision and the whole of the industry seems to be diluting itself to the point that they’re all attempting to be all things to all men, and doing it badly.

Can we get some focus, please?

    Maybe a sign that nobody makes bad bikes any more.

    We all know how and where we want to ride, we’ve all got a bike that does it OK and most bits on it don’t wear out too quickly.

    So, a good thing then.

    The same happened in windsurfing, as the rate of change in kit slowed down (rapid change only means that last years big idea was found to be wrong).

    Mass market brands fight each other over smaller and smaller innovations to make customers want to upgrade to this years kit, but the boutique suppliers do well, as do the retailers who are still in touch with what their customers actually do.

    So keep up the night rides, and get yerself back over to the lovely Chase :o)

    How about the Spot belt drives?

    Well, the belt drive is a good thing – I personally think it has a little bit more developement to undergo before it’s ready for the real world, but you can guarantee that there will be belt drive ranges from everybody next year.

    95% rider 5% bike so I wonder why we bother getting so keyed up about the latest and greatest!

    Did you get a ride on the Pivot bikes Tim?
    They look interesting (if a little ugly).
