I received a Go Outdoors catalogue through the post yesterday. Whilst having a quick browse I can across this description.

    As opposed to 6.39 on a Tuesday evening, eh? :lol:
    How would I write my own epitaph? With a crayon - I'm not allowed anything I can sharpen to a sustainable point.

    Ah, I've grown accustomed to marketing bullshit so to me i just read "bike with hydraulic disk brakes".

    Tbh bike was on the boundary of being ejected as bullshit.

    To be honest, I'd buy this if I only had £150 to spend

    marketing is like the salad on your plate of steak & chips - just there for the look and doesn't add any value

    tbqh I'd be more concerned with the use of words such as extreme & rugged on a bike that patently wouldn't stand up to much.
