I went to look at Swobo's website, as I enjoy looking at their bikes. It would not let me in unless I gave it my e-mail address. Phooey on that, I say.
I mean, I wasn't going to buy one anyway (well, maybe a Folsom!) but geez, really? I tried a few different ways in but no luck. So phooey on Swobo, it's just rude and obnoxious, and I hope I'm not the only one upset about this sort of thing haha!
Does anyone have an e-mail address for them? I mean an even trade right? Why should I go first?
I just looked at the site and have to say that it's the most obnoxious commerce site I've ever seen! Hiding behind a veneer of pretension to harvest emails. So, so, wrong.

C'mon! Even phony dating sites give the impossible hotties first. Skip it.

(re-post) Hi All - with regards to the Swobo.com (http://www.swobo.com/)site, we are simply rebuilding the site and this is a landing page until we re-launch which is targeted for 6/15. We took over the brand last year from SCB (http://www.santacruzbicycles.com/) and have been focused on developing product, rebuilding old gear, moving suppliers, finding new contract manufactures and moving design, sales and a new warehouse. We are a family-run business, run by a second-generation bicycle family and very focused on bring this killer brand back from the dead. Yes, we are collecting names of interested parties while the main site is down, we do make and sell product and did not inherit a usable customer database when we got Swobo - most likely why this is version 3.0 for the company. The response since posting the wufoo (http://wufoo.com/) site has been overwhelmingly positive, takes one more thing off our plate as we focus on ensuring success. We have moved bicycle production to a smaller group of craftsmen in Taiwan that have incredible attention to detail and quality, summer jerseys to Italy from China, wool gear/apparel from Fiji back the USA (Colorado specifically)… it certainly isn't less expensive or easier, but because these were important to us as new operators and make the best quality Swobo has ever had.
