I also like how a mountain bike review feature is listed under Property>Interiors.

I know technically a bike is property but surely there was a more appropriate section.

Love the random statements made for #1:
Quote:
This well thought-out bike will give you that extra grip on rugged terrain, while the 21 gears will help you climb hills.


21 whole gears? All for me? O-M-G where's my wallet! And extra grip on rugged terrain? Holy cow... I mainly ride semi-rugged terrain so it'll cope no problem.

And nice generic statement for #7:
Quote:
Specialized is the most respected brand.


They could at least have made the effort to make a complete sentance out of that. :roll:
