    In Reality: there is no substitute for personal seat time on the bike in which you are interested. With a Knolly you buy by faith or go to a destination (like Gooseberry Mesa) and rent.
    Really good post TSC! One thing I would add is that the most valuable review to get is from someone who had a bike and then moved on to another bike because of some reason. Those are almost impossible to get because people generally don't want talk about their "mistakes". Or they get hammered by fanboys because the koolaid didnt taste as sweet to them. Why we dump a product might be the same reason someone else might want to avoid that same product. Sadly those type of reviews are few and far between.

    We think alike. I do the same with varied results. Its all a crap shoot to some degree but most bikes are really good now and the differences are very small.
