Debate is good because it sinks you deeper into what you already believe. Just like OP who titles thread with a question mark but already has their answers.

This should be required reading to post on BF. One of those "click the box to acknowledge that have read an understood the terms and conditions" thingies.

Damn. So close.

Typos and auto-correct matter too.

Good article on singletracks a few years back. They mentioned how high end bikes were much lighter than say a 1500 to 2000$ bicycle. Those cheaper bikes have heavier parts that could very well last longer than the lighter expensive parts. Although many donít believe this.

I do do believe it.

Your lesson for today:

Not every reply is about you.

See my previous post for a perfect example of this fact.

In future threads I'd be pleased to see you two guys being nicer to one another.
