Interesting that you didn't seem to mind people saying it was lovely even though you claim to not want people to tell you what they think And no, I wouldn't wander up to you and tell you the wheels were ugly, however, if you asked my opinion either here or to my face, I would tell you that they were bl**dy ugly, and I assume you would be happy with that since you would like opinions to be truthful ?No I wasn't asking for opinions, nor do I want people to tell me what they think I want to hear, if I had asked for opinions I'd like them to be truthful. I like the bike, I chose it for me, not anyone else so I'm not fussed what you or anyone else thinks.
My point was whether or not you would have said that to my face. Imagine I rode up to a club ride we were both attending, both virtual strangers, would you have come up to me to tell me you thought it was nice enough but had ugly wheels? Or is it easier to say via the faceless internet?
To be honest I couldn't really care either way, just made me wonder which type of person you are. Perhaps it's the "if you've nothing nice to say, say nothing" schooling I've received.
Oh for flips sake, that is exactly what I didn't sayLike I said it wasn't a post asking for opinions, and I assumed the basic manners most of us were taught as children would transfer to this 'fun and friendly online cycling community'
The fact you wouldn't come up and say it to my face but are happy to be so rude whilst hiding behind your keyboard demonstrates exactly my point. It's cowardly and rude just for the sake of it.
