    Well, you are entitled to your opinion. But to me, it is not kosher for a commercial enterprise to put its name on someone else's work unless they have paid that someone else for the right. I am not...

    World o' difference. In your scenario, the person/company whose name is on it pays for the privilege. It's part of a negotiated-at-arms-length business deal. Same with the old practice of pros on...

    And here I thought that Bridgestone closed down their US bike operation because changes in currency exchange rates made it a money-loser. Remember, as someone else said, Bridgestone is a BIG tire...

    Holy crap, that language is an invitation to disaster. And if they got that advice from a lawyer, it is malpractice. You may not be liable as a "lister," but you sure as hell are as an actual...

    Actually, if the Spinlister folks have any sense, it is the insurance company(ies) who make out better than the lawyers. They get paid regardless of whether anything bad happens or not.

    I just noticed that the saddle has three holes in it, unlike any regular Brooks Pro I have ever seen, and they certainly don't look like they were added after purchase. I have no idea if that is a...
