The Weight of Can't Win

One of the interesting aspects of having the Fascist Killer living in the world is fielding questions about a product that is actually 'ours,' as opposed to what you say as an cyclist using someone else's product. Simple questions like, "How does it ride?" have proven to be a bit of a head game.

While the Fascist Killer is really new to the planet, I'm really happy with the way it rides. Sam's fork design has proven to be the best rigid fork I've ridden. It left me smiling after the Flatwater Twilight Race and I'm looking forward to racing the FK again on Saturday.

But to say that (or type it) leads the cynic in me to start putting thoughts in people's heads. Little smart ass remarks that I myself might think or even make depending on the circumstances.

So, for now, I'm going to enjoy the Fascist Killer and look forward to a time when more people are riding our goods. Let people experience War Axe for themselves and see what we are bringing to the table. Once they do, I think they'll be stoked.

Of course, that's what I'm suppose to say, right?

As a friend, I would recommend getting a unbiased opinion. It would help market your company. Recommendations are regarded highly by people who really want a quality product. Otherwise, you might be marked as one of those companies that make biased claims. There are a ton on the internet. There are a lot of gullible people. Spend some of those marketing dollars and do it right.

Dear Mr. Obvious... :-)

I was going to save that for another post, since we haven't exactly been blogging a lot, but yes, we will let riders and 'other people' take care of that sort of thing.

Still waiting for you to challenge me to a game of one-on-one basketball...
