Seduction Of The Innocent

Published December 14, 2010

 

Anticipating another deluge of electronic vituperation, I begin this week’s post with a disclaimer: I do not mean to seriously suggest that the bike industry is a religious cult, or anything like it. So certain people (you know who you are) need to just unbunch their darn panties ahead of time.

What I do mean to suggest is that some of the more excessive behavior of certain individuals  and even entire companies (and if they don’t know who they are, you probably do) is so downright cult-like that they pretty much demand to be made fun of.

Bikes are supposed to be fun, after all. So what deep-seated emotional issues drive these folks that they need to take themselves quite so seriously? Click the link see for yourself.
