    I think someone was on crack while writing this...

    Okay well i had nothing better to do and decided to check out this website. I was checking out their coparisons of their online bike to the prophet and caffine and it was like the most retarded BS I have ever seen somebody type up. It was kinda funny though their statistics and rating.

    The FAQ is kinda scary:

    Most people think you should buy bikes at this level of riding at a local bike shop. Why?

    "The big misconception that exist today in the bike market is that customers should buy from locally owned bike shops to assure they get a high quality bike assembled professionally, and to provide a means for service after the sale. This is simply not true now that Woodstock Bikes has solved the professional assembly issue and on-line purchasing has become a legitimate way for consumers to purchase merchandise. What is really going on is that bike manufacturers are protecting their local dealers by not offering their bikes on-line. These local bike dealers need to charge high margins to be able to keep their "brick and mortar" stores in business. At Woodstock Bikes, we don't have this problem and can pass on those savings to our customers."


    Where to start??? hmmm... Hurray!!! They've solved the professional assembly issue!!!!! What's that mean, they figured out how to mount a tire with the little rotational arrow pointing in the right direction?

    Upset let's use their formula for a Wallyworld bike...

    "Good=1, Better=2, Best=3, Excellent=4, Perfect=5

    ** Value:
    ((2000-Total Price)*Quality Rating)/100"

    we can all agree that a Next has an average quality rating of about -99... but their formula only allows a "1" as the lowest value... So we give the Next Mountain Steroid Basher an average quality value of "1"... and plug it into the formula with a price tag of $200


    ((2000-$200) x 1) / 100 = a total value rating of "18"

    let's use their avg. quality rating for a C'Dale Prophet 5...

    ((2000-$1748.99) x 2.69) / 100 = a total value rating of "6.75"

    Damn, I'm sold!!!! I'm getting a NEXT!!! Hoooooooray!!!!

    All they really talk about is components. I bought my Cdale for the frame quality and weight. Where do they get off rating their frame as equal to a Cdale?
