Ok, what's the dumbest slogan you've ever come across in the world of mt biking?

My pick: "suspend the rider, not the bike."

Really good way to lose control.

I didnt realize mtn bikes had slogans. I cannot think of one off the top of my head. Maybe using that stupid bottle opener on the Heckler as an extra cool thing. Seems dumb to me. I love my Heckler, but the bottle opener almost makes me want to look at other bikes. Maybe the new one can have some kind of devise to smoke weed attached to it??

You know the little hole in the BB? That's the carb. Just fill the down tube with water and use the special bowl that fits on the seat tube. Voila! Insta bong!

You hear it year in and year out

"The newest innovation to full suspension". That slogan is usually the death of a bike. The design usually goes away a year or two later.

every time

Each and every time I think I've come up with a new invention, I turn around and there is the same thing already in production.

Taiwanese component company trade ads are great for strange tag lines. One of my favorites was "Our best for others are striving!"

Maybe the whole "Ellworthian way" thing. I dunno, never rode one, nor am I attacking those who do or the company, but its kinda ghey.
I drive a Huyndia, therefore, I know the "Huyndian way" ...(keep AAA on speedial :) )

what about

Pricepoint's slogan: "Prices so low you'll think it's 1976!"

I'm thinking that I don't want to think it's 1976 because that means there aren't that many mt bike parts available anyway.

Besides, that dude with the fro irritates the hell out of me.
