RE­PORTS OF DEATH GREATLY EX­AG­GER­ATED

Cycle World - - Intake - MIKE MCCORMICK ROANOKE, VA

Harsh words (“Death of the Neo­cus­tom,” March). We all cus­tom­ize our bikes. Agreed that what is pop­u­lar on TV or in print is of­ten old. Thank our stars there is an af­ter­mar­ket for those of us who don’t have the money, savvy, or ma­chine shop in the base­ment to cre­ate our per­sonal Franken­stein! But for­tu­nately we can cre­ate mon­sters and dis­as­ters with a credit card and an af­ter­mar­ket web­site. I be­lieve we have the right to screw up ev­ery good bike we own in an at­tempt to make it bet­ter in our sim­ple minds. And put our stamp on it, in spite of much crit­i­cism. I’ve screwed up my share. And learned from it and en­joyed most of the creations.
