Hello Everyone. With this post, I want to make some confessions...
Ok.. here goes.
First of all, I've been less than motivated to post on this blog (as if you can't tell...). In fact, it just about takes someone to put a gun to my head to do so. Mainly because, quite frankly, I don't make money doing it. When the day comes to an end and I'm tired putting the fix to bikes, I just haven't been able to bring myself to do it. It's certainly NOT because I don't have anything to say.
I guess that another reason why I haven't posted much is that I think that I'm getting to the point that whatever I'm going to say is either going to A) Tick someone off, or B) Going to be construed as "bitching" (And I think that there's plenty of that already in the cycling industry).
Now, I'm well aware that by merely opening your mouth there's a good chance that you're going to tick someone off. In some respects, I'm ok with that. What I REALLY do not what to happen is to be grouped with those that bitch about everything. See "B" above.
So where do I go from here? Based on the volume of emails, calls, and comments that I have been receiving during the last 6 or so months since I posted, I strongly believe that people what the hear and read what I have to say. I also think that "end users" (that's you...) what are involved with cycling really want accurate information and ultimately, the truth. I remember someone once said, " If you're not catching flack, you're not over the target." How true.
So here goes... I'm going to give it another shot. We'll see what happens. Thanks for sticking around and thank all of you who have written and called. I hope that I helped in some way. -John
