where's the dishonest thread?

8/24/2021 3:03 PM

Accidentally signed up for a annual subscription of flo bike when i planned to only do one month. Gonna give it a shot and see if itโ€™s worthwhile but look out signing up cause easy to get charged for a year.

yeah, i don't think that's a hard accident to make. there's no monthly fee option on that site, but that sign-up page is pretty slick in making it appear like there is.

i did the same thing for national champs earlier this summer. full year subscription. not too bummed, but i should have signedup less quickly LOL

Looking for a bit of clarification, does this mean they will host the Redbull stream or have commentary of their own?

Thanks, that's a shame, I'll be going the VPN route as usual. Still....beyond stoked!

Used flosports last year. Not great. They did have cameras running so got to see some riders with no commentary that normally arenโ€™t on the red bull coverage. Commentary was not good.
I complained about quality after event and got a refund.

I hope the Moped racers cheat like complete sons of bitches in NASCAR in the '80s.

I want the winner to smoke the field like a Floyd Landis breakaway...then watch their downtube glow red and melt from the heat of the nuclear reactor the winner stuffed in it.

Pretty awesome initiative Canyon is taking for Worlds this year with all their riders rocking the same 'One World' paint job to promote unity within cycling.

Part of this project is Canyon is donating to the World Bicycle Relief and anyone who donates will have the chance to win a Spectral CF 29 with the same One World artwork. Here is the link to donate for anyone who is interested! - https://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/support-world-bicycle-relief-and-win-a-spectral-29?utm_campaign=later-linkinbio-canyon&utm_content=later-20035716&utm_medium=social&utm_source=linkin.bio
