He had the right general idea about most things but was little more than a charismatic orator, moderately intelligent, but far from an intellectual. The exact type of man who appeals to the masses. If he was alive today he would probably have a popular youtube channel.

Audi have done a similar one too.

"Do not attempt. Dramatization using a specifically prepared vehicle."

It's less to do with a fear that people might actually try it, and more to do with the fact that they would be leaving themselves open to claims of false advertising. It's the same as video games adverts which say "not actual footage"

Dear lads,

as the representative of the German industry on this board, it is both my suty and my pleasure to present you with the finest works of the German economy. Today, I would like to introduce you to a Bergfahrrad of the German bike manufacturer Focus.
The bike is called "Black Forest" and it is engineered by some of the finest engineers in all of Germany.
Make sure to buy it next time you go shopping.

The engineering still happens in Germany, it's "just" the assembly that happens in Taiwan. There's a lot of skill and ingenuity in making these high end bikes at scale, but the design is ultimately foreign. I.e. it's a German bike made (possible) in Taiwan.

Regarding the groupset, there is no choice nowadays anyway, you buy a bike with SRAM or with Shimano depending on your personal preference (or campagnolo too if it's a road bike). If the groupset is made by anyone else you don't even touch it.
There are good parts made in Europe/US for other components though, like carbon frames and wheels, in particular there are many Western manufacturers of smaller components like handlebars, bearings, brakes, saddles etc. You just need to start spending over £1000 to get a bike with these rather than Asian parts, and I believe at this price point you hit the law of diminishing returns. Yes it would be nice to have a shiny pair of Hope disc brakes, but no one's going to notice any difference between those and a pair of Malaysian built Shimanos unless they're heading to the downhill tracks in Wales.

It's a mountain bike, not a city bike, none of what you have said is the slightest bit relevant. You may as well be complaining that a pair of pliers is no good for hammering nails.

I sort of agree with this, but I sort of don't.
The thing about modern bicycles is that they're so incredibly standardised that there is very little engineering that can be put into the design of the bike, the majority of the work in designing a new bike is in choosing the combination of off-the-shelf components. A manufacturer will design their own frame (within a large number of constraints). But while there are good frames and bad frames it will often fall down to personal preference, one guy might love a frame made by one company, another guy prefers the frame from another. A lot of it will fall down to the fact that people are different shapes, even two people exactly the same height can have different sized limbs, so a certain frame will suit each person more than others.
That said, I do prefer German brands over others as I said further up, with any European bike, especially for German brands, you get the most bang-for-your-buck.

While we're talking about bikes, I'd just like to register my complaint about how manufacturers furnish their frames to sell as complete bikes. I see a staggering number of bikes advertised as having, say, Shimano 105, with 105 in the name of the bike, yet the derailleur and STi are Tiagra and the crank is FSA. I understand wanting to hit a certain price point but even on much higher end bikes I've seen them scrimp on certain things. If you're not willing to sell your frame to me to build up, you shouldn't be offering me a mismatched build.

Thank christ for Ribble is all I can say.

In fairness, the mongrel groupsets tend to be better value than a 'pure' groupset. It's not so much scrimping as it is spending the money where it matters. I'd much rather have a rear mech that shifts more crisply than a front mech that is a few grams lighter, for instance. Even the ProTour teams do it - pretty much every team in the peloton uses Ultegra/Force/Chorus level chains and cassettes.

22886 German Tourism Representative
Dear lads,

today I would like to draw your attention to a German festival that does not get the attention´it deserves due to the overshadowing effect of the Bavarian tourist trap Oktoberfest: The Cannstatter Wasen in Stuttgart.
Basically, it is like the Oktoberfest just with less Italians and Australians and with more actual Germans and more fun.
Also, the prices are not quite as ridiculous as in the OF.
This year the Cannstatter Wasen will be held for the 169th time and it will take place from the 26th of September until the 12th of October, in Stuttgart .
I will, of course, go there as well and I am looking forward to seeing you there.

>"Russians are not homophobic. Well ok they hate gays, but you gotta understand average Russian hates almost all the things in this world".
I can verify this anecdotally. I've only ever met one Russian but he did hate absolutely everything. Even other Russians.

Relative to that part of the world, I met a nice Lithuanian chap once who hated everything but vodka and 8/10+ women. Listening to him talk about "the gays" in the pub loudly after a pint or two (I managed to make him try bitter, he wasn't a fan) was the most cringe worthy moment of my life to date. I felt like David Mitchell's character in Peep Show, unable to speak due to anxiety. Some of you may be wondering why I described him as nice, well, he went very far out of his way to help random people in the street, as long as they weren't gay of course.
