    Was checking out those Cons in FP earlier. So much nicer in the flesh.

    Wow, what a fucking original design. Do you think the market is ready?

    I feel like Common Projects has had a profound influence on a lot of these stripped back styles

    It's not difficult:

    Entry level bikes sold as such = ok.

    Entry level bikes sold as bespoke vintage hand-crafted track bike developed by deeply sexual Italian artisans and rolling on H+Son (I promise) and the slickest fixed gear finery = not ok.

    Also not ok/damaging to reputation:
    Selling mechanically unsound 'refurbishments'
    Perversion of the great cycling lexicon to misrepresent products
    Lying about Chinese manufacturers
    Dressing up gas pipe and selling at BMC prices
    Aggressive exchanges with forum members when called out on any of the above

    For further info on unacceptable practices see Bad Traders thread.

    I agree to some extent. There are definitely a lot of problems with the film, particularly in the third act but the feeling of suspense throughout the first hour is something I rarely experience in modern movies. My biggest gripe would probably be the dialogue, mostly between Affleck and Pike (but also the sister to a lesser extent). Im not sure how much they lifted from the book but fuck me it was borderline unbearable when they were just firing quips at each other.

    Nightcrawler is ace and definitely superior but I loved Gone Girl for it's ability to keep me absolutely glued to the screen. I didn't find the conclusion to be that convincing. (But then it did also have Emily Ratajkowski so...)

    New 576 is similar and much nicer IMO
