    They should send you some grips for using the pic. Oh yeah...and some mudflaps. Just saying.
    I'm not one for fawning over bicycles, but I do believe that our bikes communicate with us, and what this bike is saying is, "You're an idiot." BikeSnobNYC

    Yes, that be the one. As to how it happened, I have no idea. It's up on Velospace, so I suppose they have a marketing intern trolling the sites in his/her spare time and found it. Very flattering! I hope they sponsor me to the tune of a pair of B66 or B73s and a set of Brick Lane roll-up panniers. *Hope hope*

    SO they stole your pic and they are using it for commercial promotional purposes without your consent?

    velospace probably gains the rights to it when you upload the picture to their server.

    Yeah, this seems pretty strange. I wouldn't be a dick about it, but you should send them an email saying, "Hey, I'm glad you think my bicycle is nice enough to represent your product, but you could have let me know you were going to use it! Also, free-stuff please."

    Velospace actually doesn't appear to have a copyright policy published on their site. Interesting.

    then the only logical thing left to do is get free stuff from Brooks.

    Everyone keeps saying "get free stuff" but with a bike like that I could retire to my fortress of solitude and awesomeness and do nothing but ride that bike around all day long admiring how awesome it is.

    Seriously, can I have it?

    Sometime I hate this country we live in, where we feel entitled to fame and money at every turn.

    I hope all of this "sue them" **** is sarcasm. It would have been polite for them to contact you, but honestly I'd feel pretty good if a bike company thought my bike was good enough to represent their company.
