Sorry, misusing an apostrophe doesn't make it easier to understand, it does the opposite.

All this debate about apostrophes is inappropriate. We should be concentrating on split infinitives and dangling participles.

I think it works with different formatting.
Can't speak to the font though.

I LOVE that bike! Seeing in person the original $99 GMC Denali (the blue with the semi-deep section wheels) was literally what got me back into bikes after not owning or riding a bike for over 15 years:

Back then, it was like a pro bike for the casuals (like me)!

Just carry a tin of pine tar if your hands start to slip on those tapeless bars......

Put in end plugs for safety. Personally I think tape just looks better, carbon is nice but tape adds color and comfort.

Don't let strangers tell you what to do. Run it raw if you wish. Take the hoods off too (to?) to (too?) match.

They look good and better than my inner tubes wrapped in black cork.

I can see the appeal for those preferring a slippery handlebar bar and that not-quite-done-with-the-build look.
