Because they are more interested in "Pretty Pictures" than practical bikes.

Where are the clips? Tossed for Clipless when I ride...(3000 plus miles on mountain bikes this year, not all of course on the Santana)

Your point is well taken, if the bike is to be shown as a steady rocker...

i'd take a guess at, because they don't get ridden?

All wrong,

You know It's going to be a good month when the girls start getting their claws out so early!!

If a bike gets ridden hard everyday or just polished to within an inch of it's life, what's it to anyone else? Vote for the best bike in your opinion.

Just don't waste it on a Raleigh Activator!! MEEEEEYYOOW :lol: :lol:

al. :wink:
