    ^-- Yeah true. Gotta start somewhere. I imagine if it said 'some kids just started a website called …' no one would bother looking it up.

    Glad Jonathan posted about it though, hopefully it helps the community unite a little here.

    As usual there's a flame war in the comments section. Happens every time there's an article about track bikes on the street over at good old BikePortland.org

    yeah, i just thought it was funny knowing what went down and seeing how it was phrased.
