2008 – should you upgrade?

Posted by Matt | January 3, 2008 | 2 comments so far

Paraphrasing – and yes, in a way blatantly reducing the Bike Snob’s witty article to a three point list, you should upgrade to 2008 because:

  1. 2008 comes complete with a whole extra day
  2. Christmas falls on a Thursday, so with judicious use of your holiday leave you can take four days off between Christmas and New Year and grab eleven days of loafing in return
  3. 2008 looks so good it might just be the last year you ever buy

You can read the full genius of Bike Snob’s wit in BSNYC Product Review: 2008 First Impressions.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.
