Out of noseyness on my part:

Let's flip that over...

When you see something you have never beheld before

How do you come to a cool or uncool judgement?

Do you find out stuff about it?

Maybe read reveiws?

Talk to friends?

Try it out?

Wow, fair bit of deabte here. Good to see although I'll admit I've only skim read the first 300 pages.

Anyhow quite interested to see the Big S coming out as cool thus far. As such thought I'd drop this picture into the thread.

That's it then,you win the cool arguement with that tat! :lol:

I've just realised that my missus's's (I'm obsessed with s's!) bike has a complete DX groupset on it. Although it is locked away in the loft on a turbo as not to scare the kids.

Oh the shame. :oops:

Where did I put that rope.

20 year old kit that's been used to hell yet still looks like that and functions flawlessly

DX? Mmm shiny

It doesn't look good though.

It looks like It's designed to last twenty years,by a technicion in an office in Japan. Where's the passion and soul? :( Infact you couldn't have found a worse bit of kit to try and proove your flimsy cool theory.

DX? Mmm S***

al. :wink:

You don't like it Al

Don't dictate to me or anyone what's cool or not based on what you think

That's an old trick now

Tell us what you think by all means

- It's not a theory, it's an opinion and it's not flimsy

- How do you know there's no passion and soul?

- And what MTB group does have passion and soul?

It's all engineering to acheive a purpose

Some's better than others - This stuff (XT, not my particular kit) has been used by countless Champions

This particular kit's been doing the job for 20 years

I'd rather bin it to be honest.


I feel such a fool! if I had read the list of bikes you own, I would never have got into this in the first place.

I'm a aware that cool is purely subjective, although I'm wondering if you may have had a taste bypass at some point.

We are so far appart when it comes to cool that this relationship looks destined to fail. :(

I still like you as a friend though. :D
