Psyclone and Xizang frames : Cool

Karakoram : Probably the best big-brand frame for the money at the time. Cool if you're "in the know" but to keep the well-kept secret, OK.

Their thermoplastic FS frames were revolutionary but I never wanted to wake up next to one.

I'm going for "OK".

So what happens if the "OK" and "uncool" votes combined outnumber the "cool" votes? Does cool still win out?


Based on a distribution, I'd say that makes it fall just outside coolness, just like a "can do better" B+ on a school report card - which sums GT for me really.

Ah yes, hadn't considered completing any sort of statistical analysis on the results. The row with the most votes would win. However if anyone has a better suggestion which they can justify I'm happy to hear it. Alternatively maybe I'll try and dig some of my old stats text books out. Or not...

I'd say for GT to be Cool it has to get >50% of total votes cast :wink:

i wouldn't think so, i would have say it had to get majority vote of "cool" to be "cool". :wink:

deffo


No chance :x



Thanks for the clarification...I think
:wink:

I'll go with which ever category gets 50% of the vote takes it. As of this moment, GT is on the outside, looking in to the cool wall.

Got a pm on this matter of coolness, name has been removed from the quote:
Quote:
That just isn;t going to happen....when the guys on the GT German forum wake up it will be like 80% cool GT just watch


and my response:
cool is different than good or even great. Something can be great, but not cool. GT PR over the course of the 90's was based on being cool and hardcore/extreme, what have you. It was great marketing, but that in and of itself can detract from coolness.

just my opinion; I told you I like GT bikes; just can't vote for them as cool if cool is going to truly mean something.

guess we're waiting on the german vote :wink:
