oh jeff, jeff, jeff. everyone here knew you were white the very moment you began to write. and if people can tell your race by the words you are writing/saying in this very day, in this very era, in this very pivotal chapter in american history...you're on the wrong side of history. and thats the bottom line. i assure you of that, my fellow mtb lover.

so if i am understanding you correctly:

you are pro/for the 1963 march in DC because it was called "March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom" and in your mind that march/movement had a clear goal(s) that they wanted to achieve and thus they had definable objectives

but you are against all the BLM marches/movement because they are marching against SO much (ie - general racism and what that means for non-whites from a vast multifaceted standpoint)? What you want them to say - at the end of this march, we want X, Y, and Z - but because you feel there is no singular leader or voice to BLM you dismiss the whole entire thing?

I'm disappointed that you hold this viewpoint Jeff.

If it does nothing then why are you affected by it?

It does something for me. While I'm not black, I've been at the receiving end of racist remarks. A friend hated the Chinese and said they all should be bombed and...more

Well done Commencal. Ignorance and intolerance are a worldwide problem and those that disagree can just go TossOff!

i mean it was pretty dang incredible to see/hear/read about the same types of protests being held in london and italy and all over the world. in a lot of ways, this did bring people all over the world together with things theyve been feeling for a while. you got to admit - there is a lot of strength and unity in that. no?

and here we are. commenting on a bicycle forum. about race. thus having a conversation about it.

whether you agree or not, having words like this in "seemingly useless or non-applicable place [ie - mt bikes]" gets more people talking about race. and not talking about race is the issue...

i live in a major US city. this isn't going away anytime soon. have more conversations that make you feel uneasy! i love the paint jobs. keep on, commencal!

So much to like about the kinematics and design of that frame , but the aesthetics are trying way to hard to be unique at the expense of logic. They need to have longer reach and chainstays for each size. I would buy one if they did that.

i did have a few pairs of juicys of the same era that i had to do rebuilds on but my codes have been a cornerstone. ive got a 12 yr old set of hadley hubs and an 8? yr old set of those codes. every other part on my "big bike" build has changed many times over other than those two parts haaa.

is it weird to anyone else that oil slick came and went in mtb street and bmx many years ago and mtb is just getting it now? seems so strange to be this many years behind a finish/colorway

Great review and bike. I will never understand the demand and hype behind carbon rims. Yes I am sure some are better than others, but the amount of cracked rims I have seen the field from just about every brand is insane.
