Old School Throwback: Hammertime - Pinkbike
Maaan I wanted those Onza pedals......
PS: makes me think a little about how GT somehow squandered or possibly misshandled the oppertunity to be a major player in DH/freeriding/AM movement. If they did or didnt might end up in a semantics-fight. It might just be a conscious boardroom decision not to invest in this, but I fear its more unconscious than that.
Perhaps, mtb'ing just got corrupted in the whole olympics thing and corporate players took the sport in the wrong dirrection? I mean, lycra, ridgid forks, 29", 1.95" tyres, round track pedal pushing on neat trails with hardly any "off-road" elements, VO2max tests.....that wasn't what mountainbiking was supposed to be, a lot of roadies with great stamina cycling round and round and round and round. And yes I think Gary Fisher is a sell out, Klein as well....I think Trek makes awsome bikes, but they have destroyed insanely great brands doing so. What have they gained? Fisher customers, wanting originality, sought others brands creating demand and in turn new brands. So in a wierd sense, its been good for us bikers. But I dont think Trek gained a lot from buying Klein, Fisher or Bontrager. They just bough out the competition. The result was that nothing happened for a while, because it wasn't "in the interest" of the biggest players........thats my 5 Kroner at least
At least, with freeriding and enduro, it seems the sport is finding itself again and thats good.
