    Clearly Pinarello goes over the top trying to market unique tubing. Not aesthetically pleasing to most of us. But they sponsor the Brit Team Sky professionally, so their ugly bike is raced by the most well know sprinter in the world, Mark Cavendish.

    You would THINK they would be the LAST manufacturer to copy, steal, or counterfeit, due to how recognizable the product is. Unless, of course, there is some under the table deal or the chinese builder doesn't give a crap about infringement.

    Dude, this is NOT the AM forum. Sorry to bother your radical ass with hardtails and road bikes.

    P.S. Doesn't everybody own (at least) one of each: AM bike; hardtail; singlespeed; road bike?

    Sticking with your school metaphor, the whole point of testing in school was that ideally everyone would put their knowledge into play, using taught methods to solve problems and hopefully all end up with the same correct answers. Take a math equation for example, someone will isolate one part of the equation before another and someone else will do it the other way around, but if both do it correct they'll end up with the same result. That doesn't make it copying or stealing.

    What I'm saying here is, that there can be several approaches to bike building that still ends up as very similar bikes without any copying or stealing going on. Sure some people will just bring out a tape measure and steal the exact design from someone else, that's theft. But then again another guy might just experiment until he has a bike that handles the way he likes it and accidentally end up with the same design as someone else, that doesn't make it stealing.

    Can you deal with that or do you wish to continue playing the "stealing is stealing"-card without really considering if it's actually theft or not?


    We were discussing theft by copies, not end results reached through entirely different approaches. You can continue to twist your argument to suit your needs all you want, it does not alter the original premise of the discussion. Can you deal with that?

    But, but, but. Your side of the argument keeps evolving, morphing into something that does not even resemble the original premise. You sure are desperate. Keep trying.

    So far, we have covered multiple topics of interest:

    1. Carbon frames

    2. Karaoke machines

    3. How lame road bikes and hard tail mountain bikes are vs gnar gnar AM radicalness

    4. The surprising demand for a bike made from unicorn instead of carbon

    5. Some MTBR members clearly fancy themselves as moderators

    6. That rydbyk is a chinese carbon racer fanboi and has no right to be

    7. etc etc

    Well I'll be damned. Figured you were one of the reds. You can't tell, can you

    I'm definitely one of those guys who has a long list of both, luckily so far the greens outnumber the reds.

    It's just my personality and no, my wife is not impressed. She makes me take happy pills.

    Read the original article again. It mentions that a lot of different brands and non-brands are in fact made in the same factory. You can insist that the thread should be about copy theft instead, but that doesn't make it so.

    Jus because they are made in the same factory does not mean that they are not infringements, you really are reaching now. Fail.

    Unicorn love and narwhals, this thread rules. I was expecting long drawn out circular diiatribes that lead nowhere; I'm glad it was actually full of win.
