I take it you have read through their site.....perhaps you are affiliated in some way?

Anyway, I suppose I have a nose for technical BS. It's part of my job.

He's connected some how. He posted the same thing in the Road forum with something like, "Hey these bikes look good don't they? What's your opinion on them?"

Coincidentally both he and the bike company are based in Trieste, Italy.

Yeah, I noticed that. Coincidence?

Personally I don't mind people promoting their products, but this is a little misleading. Entertaining web site though.

I was bored at work so I poked around online for the name he posted here with. Lots of posts on forums about web design. Looks to me like he designed the website.

How can you tell? I can't tell if this is BS or not:

Quote:
The soft line of this Ti3Al2.5 frame of high structural properties together with the precision of the dropouts made of a Ti6Al4V sheet conduce it to the purpose for which it is designed: the control of the toughest paths, safe driving and absorbing the hardest shocks keeping for you the taste to jerk with the fastest response.
Yeah, I guess I could see where it would keep for me the taste to jerk............

The site needs some updating though: some dead links.

hi everybody, as I already told in the "road" section, I'm the webmaster of that site, i follow their image on the web, since the company is new born there are of course several mistakes and imperfections but everyone of us are ready for comments to improve. The market of the framebuilders is not so easy, expecially when you try to design and buld particular frame like titanium ones.
It was not my intention to make unwanted advertising, also because now the company is located in Italy and has a production capability that is very low, almost "on-demand". But I think that this is the moment to acquire every suggestions to fix mistakes and give better services to the users. For example is useful for me to know that there are broken links or that some of you consider the bike pages "poor" of contents or images. I will make my best to do a better job!

Can't speak regarding the content but you have a dead link from the menu on the left side. The "Kratos" MTB model links to
http://www.mathitech.it/fratos_en.html
but it looks like it should be

In the title of the thread may be put something like, "Looking for input on new Italian frame builder", or there abouts. Instead of posting in a way that makes it look like spam.
Let us know off the bat that you work for/with the company and ask for our advice. You will get the occasional dumbarse answer but you will also get some good ones as well.

I have not read through the site yet so no imputs there for now.

"unleashes a pure spiritual instinct"

I would also avoid lines like these. You're not selling shampoo to soccer moms. You're selling bikes to the pros. People with the know-how hate mumbo-jumbo like that.
