AH I wondered when Roberts DB would come up...I was holding back.

I note the difference in 'resonance' of names these days. In the Early Days (remember those?) we had Marin naming its bikes after the trails around their offices (resonance='bimbling about in the woods'), then the DB 'Ascent' and Klein 'Pinnacle' all to do with climbing up (remember that?) rather than hurtling downhill. Note modern names: Canyon Sender...Trek Session...

The shift in names reflects the state of the game...

Perhaps coming will be the Transition 'Loam Shredder' and Canyon 'Whip Machine'

I've just bought a Spank Tweet Tweet. What's that about?

Just bought a Pole Taival. In Finnish, Pole Pole... means Pedal Peda...l! and is apparently shouted at races.
Taival means Journey, so MTB related at least
