    imo ‘murdered out’ doesn’t include things with big white graphics.

    Does anyone here ride pedals that cost over £200?

    Oh right, hadn’t realised Bionicon and B Labs were the same people.

    In traditional Fresh Goods style, 27.90eur for a C.Guide eco!?! Its only a couple of bits of plastic with a new bendy bit etc etc

    What AlexSimon said its only “murdered out’ if logos black on black. If you’re going to drop in hipster lingo make sure you are actually using it correctly please

    Either I’m getting old, have been living abroad for too long, or maybe both. But I don’t understand half of the jokes here….
