Added a comment about feature Op-Ed - DON’T SPOIL THE RESULTS IN THE TITLE 9/18/2019 4:37 AM

I understand how annoying it must be to receive emails like this. Somebody obviously ranting and not caring to properly explain their viewpoint.

On the other hand, perhaps Peter already tried to avoid social media and many websites to achieve his goal. Only to see the suspense for the replay ruined at the glance of a news outlet like vital. Ok, first world problem for sure.

But the internet brought about the chance to get a semi-live experience by watching a replay hours later. Why not embrace this new viewing profile, as something like that hasnt existed beforehand (bar the mentioned VHS tapes). There is a need to accommodate these people.

While I reject the tone of voice that Peter delivered, what's wrong in being a welcoming and understanding portal, one that let's the user decide what they want to see?

Cheers. The three of us spend a bit of time on it. Usually around 2-3 am each night. We debate argue and democratically decide what makes the cut. Many good shots don't see the light of day, its all about the story telling and not about the shots.

Just that the ol' baggy moto style feels quite outdated by now. No need for sausage-skinsuits, but modern slim fit looks great for racers.

Wasn't the special thing about Athertons and Merida that they have established quite a tight link over the years? If so, I doubt the Athertons would just buy frames from Merida. That would make it more of a "let's sneak a Merida DH bike into the market ... more »

I remember when we were 14 years old that for quite a while we actually made fun of these hite-rites. "Why adjust your saddle on the fly?" little did we understand their future significance...
