I wonder if the fence is sharper on the other side ;)
"Lots of people worked their asses off to build whatever you’re riding on. You should thank them."
No I shouldn't...I gave everyone involved in the building of my bike a five figure thank you the day I paid for the thing.
So by that thinking, the bike shop should just hand the bike over, take the cash and walk off? Fair swap cash for bike, see ya later?
I don't quite follow how you read that in my post. The inane statement on the surlybikes blog site implies that when you buy a bike you're under some obligation to write a thank you letter to the factory where the bike was built.
How many people buy a car and then ring up the car factory and thank the people for building their car?
My thank you to the people at the Bianchi factory is choosing to fork out $xx,xxxx on one of their machines and also to wear the Bianchi colours whenever I go riding.
I'm obviously missing something here...
Gary and Pete, please PM me your addresses so I can write you thank you letters for responding to my post.
just get really drunk and write your compliments on their wall
... like a few other notorious A/C members would
going well? getting greyer and grumpier everyday
Think I'll just get really drunk.....
