    GMC roadie?

    In cruising the Roadie forum i stumbled upon this beast

    I wonder if it's got a cassette hub?

    who knows, maybe track bikes next

    do you mean maybe the manufacturer will be making a track bike,
    or this would make a good conversion, or ??

    not likely i would say, despite the current fad.

    and the dropouts look verticle, so not the best conversion.

    my favorites:

    Bike Type: Mountain
    Brake Type: Alloy

    though a significant improvement over the thousands of junk 'mountain bikes' out there.

    may I suggest an alleycat where your entrance fee is buying a _mart bike and converting it. the winner gets to set the pile on fire afterwards.

    That would be fun except for the part where I give my money to a company that exploits poor folks in other countries, having them make cheap ***** to be sold by exploited poor folks in this country to other exploited poor folks in this country...

    btw, did y'all see the $172 million award against them for not letting employees take lunch breaks?
    just wait til the "we delete overtime hours from our employees' timesheets" lawsuit is over
    and then there's the "we lock our night staff into the store and they can't get out in case of fire/medical emergency" lawsuit coming up.

    I'd honestly rather set fire to the bikes in the store...just not at night because then the stock crew couldn't get out the doors of their prison, er, workplace...

    /overcaffeinated rant

    Surely the GMC Denali is not the worst thing out there.

    If I see another full-suspension NEXT mtb with triple tree fauxshocks and welds thick as carrots cruising campus, I'm gonna...congratulate them for tolerating that 50lb heap at all.
