I stand by my work and put my name to everything that leaves my workshop. It is not shoddy in any way. Ever. If it was, I would not be in my position.

Just "Slapping" a bike together can take as little as 15 mins. (edit: a regular build does take more time, but certainly not anywhere near 3 hours) In my company 3hrs would be considered slow for the kind of build you mention. If we factored in every ... more »

3hrs to build a bike from a kit... Thats pretty slow! We do full strip, clean and rebuild in that time (minus fork/shock service and brake bleeds). Barring anything unforseen, its super achievable target. (for reference, thats service work... not new ... more »

Biggest troll on this thread joined Vital yesterday. I’m pretty sure Cam and Tyler put a PSA to all you haters in the vid, scroll to 5:12.

I can assure you they were NOT paid for this, in fact Cam paid to have it filmed properly out of his own pocket. Trek would slap a fat logo on this if they were paid you dumbass. Maybe their dad didn't ride bikes with them when they were younger because they mostly rode...more

Constructive. Glad the idea of getting people (who are restricted by age or health) on bikes with their friends/family causes you to feel ill. Thanks for joining the discussion.

(Some of this is after listening to the podcast) If its anything like Giant do in the UK its a super easy sale for shops and in the case of Giant the same margin too. Albeit Spec' are only giving 75%, but that's not unfair. Plus if the shop is any good ... more »

Newsflash: e-bikes don't cause any more access issues than normal mtb riders who ride the same illegal trails. Access was an issue even before ebikes existed. Any bike + illegal trails = pissed off rangers/city council members/grandmas/whoever. If a trail is illegal, than anyone...more

No no, not once have I told you to shut up. I made a generalised comment about whining, which if you read further actually tells 'you' (again that is a general use of the term, so please don't take it personally) to do more so your voice can be heard.

Neither did I mention anything about location and laws, etc. FYI I totally agree that we live in different places which have all of and more of the differences you've written. There's no need to use them as an excuse because they are not relevant to my point. The reason we have better access in the UK and in the wider European lands is because we have done and continue to do something about it. There are many great people in our land that care passionately about access and they have all joined various groups to discuss and bring about changes to access laws for the benefits of others... and themselves.

Yes the issues that face you guys in the US are different (no shit Sherlock). But to make them change, people have to get off their arses to do something about it... which will take a lot of time because just like in the UK there are many people that all want access and they all have different opinions and interpretations of the law and what it entails.

We're more fortunate than you because our access changes started decades ago (partly with a mass trespass on Kinder Scout) and it's still far from perfect now. However there are many people that are working to improve it (for themselves and sometimes others).

You guys are suffering with some real shitty access issues, but all i've seen here is folk pointing the finger and blaming someone else. Hence my original comment.
Maybe you could read it again without worrying so much about race, gender and who's current leader is better.
