while riding through the hills on your favourite bit of road, do you ever wonder who did the R & D on your model bike? was it a proven ex mbike racer putting hours of trying various shock/spring rate settings, to get it just right, or just build it and hope for the best. was 1 person given the task of setting up the handling on a track or was it a committee full of bean counters that created your bike out of the parts bin, and have it put together based on a 'sales prediction'. what do you think of the birth of your model? sales chart special or undeniable DNA?
