    Sad

    http://www.nj.com/news/ledger/jersey...910.xml&coll=1

    I have seen part of the collection when it was in Somerville, its is really something that every cyclist would enjoy. But in the USA cycling just gets no respect.

    Even sadder is when I visited the web site posted above, there was a car ad right in the middle of the article...

    Have you ever even seen a bike ad? On TV? On the Web?

    OK sure, a very special program on a limited access network.

    Now can we keep car ads local to only the Indy 500 and NASCAR viewers?

    Well considering that Specialized has an ANTI nascar jersey.....
    Professional cycling has shot it self in the face. Considering the BOWLING is on espn2. however it get more air time than ralleye car.

    and have you SEEEN tony stewart. talk about a guy that NEEDs to get on a bike.


    As far as NASCAR viewers.. OK most of them think that NASCAR is real. and that that a NASCAR for Fusion is a slightly modifed Ford Fusion.

    At least we can acutally ride what our pros ride.

    also nothing is stopping specialized, trek, or anyone else from buying air time during a nascar or irl event.

    i have even thought of a product placement add for the trek FX line that would do really well. i think.

    You want to sell a fitness bike put your fitness bikes on ultimate fighter. or World Combat League. ( a guy by the name of Chuck Norris runs that one)

    A guy in a limo with a couple of hotties..
    "after the fight this is my ride"
    cut to him training spriniting jumping curves weaving traffic... pulling up to his dojo.. sparring and riding off in a sprint on the fitness ness bike...
    "before the fight this is my ride"
