So instead of reading my drivel, head over to Snafu and read their 10th anniversary blog entry. If you can figure out what the hell it is McGoo is going on about, let me know. "We keep doing our thing, even when that thing isn’t the trendiest or most popular." That's for sure. I don't think I know anyone with a Snafu part. OK, I do know one dude who runs a Mobius. But that's it, though. And considering their new stuff, like their seats:
I'm not sure if that's gonna change any time soon. Is there some kind of contest going on to see which company can make the ugliest seat? Will there be an award presentation at Interbike? There has to be a reason behind all this.
(A few other suggestions for the new Snafu: spell your rider's names correctly, particularly when they're in big purple type, and you may want to give bar specs other than 'medium' and 'tall'. And just the thought of a 26" Rim Job—blech.)
Why do shops insist on building up bikes that would make even Stevie Wonder squint?
Maybe those Snafu seats'll catch on after all.
The argument for "best BMX video not yet available on DVD" would be a long one. The video this is from might not be the ultimate winner, but it would sure as hell be in the conversation.
