    posting pics of naked woman is not sexist. men like looking at attractive ladies just like ladies like the firemen calendars. this PC bullshit has gone too far. Mary Whitehouse would be loving it.

    You got all this way to the bottom of the page and still managed to miss the point. If the above was tl;dr then a quick summary:

    Bike firm showing blokes doing amazing stuff on bikes and dolly birds just posing with bikes = not cool.

    You can see that?

    My online viewing is pretty much Singletrack or Pinkbike
    Life’s too short to bother with looking at stuff you don’t like.

    “Bike firm showing blokes doing amazing stuff on bikes and dolly birds just posing with bikes = not cool.”

    nothing wrong with that – its your choice wither to follow or purchase from them. I don’t care about the advertisements or their social media wither blokes or woman doing cool things on bikes. This whole PC crap is more offensive than a company posting pics of hot chicks on bikes.

    Yeah, but I care. I guess you’ve always seen people like you – i.e. men – doing cool things on bikes. Yay. If you’re me and you never see pictures of women doing cool things on bikes you get to wonder whether you are the only one…

    So, the maths is all good. You don’t care whether you see men or women doing cool things on bikes and I care that you see both men and women doing cool things on bikes. Ergo, you will be just as happy and I will be happier if the bike industry shows both men and women doing cool things on bikes. Yay.

    It’s not PC crap, it’s good maths.

    And it’s all a lot better than the day I went through Cyclist mag (just after it was launched) and the only image of a woman was behind a sewing machine. Cyclist is a lot better and Singletrack has been pretty good for quite a while.

    @poah: if, after reading this piece and (I assume) being aware of the ever growing testimony of women being abused at every level of our society, your response is genuinely “This whole PC crap is more offensive than a company posting pics of hot chicks on bikes”, then: you are part of the problem.
    If you disagree with this, ask yourself: what your response be if that hot chick was your mum, your sister or your daughter?
    If the answer to that is that you’d be fine with it, then words, or at least Singletrack’s policy on personal insults and profanity, fail me.

    Poah is feeding the stats for this quality content even though he disagrees with Hannah and just wants to see bobs n vagene.

    Claire Buchar, Micayla Gatto, Lauren Gregg and Meggie Bichard are all very good value to follow. :-)

    ” It got me looking into it bits of the internet I’ve not had the misfortune to stumble upon before ”
    If you go looking for something online to be offended by, then really don’t be shocked when you find it !

    Dinosaurs up above, this has nothing to do with being PC! Do try to keep up.
