    SUB's...Sport Utility Bikes

    Good article which really isn't about disc brakes.

    "revolutionize the bicycle" is just a bit too much over the top for me. A lot of whats happening in the industry is just re-hashing old stuff and calling it new.

    Oh, I agree, but I thought that it's a good look at what these bikes have to offer.

    It was , after all, a platform to advance SYZR pedals.

    There seems to be this delusional belief in the bike industry that if you tweak the design just right, people will flock to cycling by the millions. I think the reality is that hardcore cycling zealots (like us here at RBR) are a pretty small population and a simple design change is not going to turn occasional cyclists into cycling fanatics

    I don't know if they're delusional or tweaking the design parameters for the zealots and, you know, n+1.
