    Nothing really going on in this thread but seriously:

    XT Brakes Question (need answers)

    You get the 29er XT brakes duh.

    Or you could post this shlt in the correct forum

    http://forums.mtbr.com/brake-time

    Or you could possibly do a fvcking search.

    BTW I've been up for close to 48hours now, getting a little tired of the lazy people especially if you have been a member since 2009 with over a thousand post.

    This one could get really good, depending upon how far it escalates:
    On-One Fatty dissection

    Dude is breaking down the new On One fat bike in the fat forums. On one big-wig subtly disses on twitter. Somebody links twitter feed to the thread. Bang. Customer vs. bike builder.

    In this business the old adage that the customer is always right should be remembered.

    it really has a chance of getting ugly now that the mfg got on here and posted a link to where he reiterated the "odd" comment. not a smart move. had a chance to say "great to see a customer so much in love with his new bike" but chooses to reinforce "odd".

    Always sage advice to never say anything about anyone (verbally or otherwise) unless you intend for it to get back to them.

    BTW, in Brant's defence, it appears his comment was taken out of context, maybe because it appeared to be an open ended statement, quite common for (misinterpreting) the interwebs and digital media, and even more common for the heavily abbreviated Twitter. Some people gravitate towards smut and negativity, which seemed to be the case for the people who responded to Brant's tweet.

    The customer has shown great character in this instance.

    BTW, I'm no angel myself. Don't be too quick to judge others.
    I see hills.

    I want to climb them.

    To be honest it seemed out of character for Brant and its good to see that it did not blow up. The Fat Bike forum usually does not succumb to dramatics, and its good to see that it did not in this instance. I also think that the fact that no one from the OC tried to influence or inflame the issue says a lot. Good job guys.

    I am not sure how you got this impression. I thought he clarified it reasonably.

    Another instance of twats on social networks twattering and getting themselves in trouble. It wasnt the on-one guy who said anything but he did incite comments by posting it there in the first place and finding it "odd" then a few idiots brough velobike's family into it. Not cool !!!
