Totally agree, these pissing contests between bikes/manufactures mean little if anything at all. I enjoy looking at what others have done to their bike or what is even possible. But best of all, watching pro riders do their stuff regardless of brand with as much envy as possible, wishing for only a fraction of their talent. The rider makes the bike, not the other way round.
