I'm not affiliated with the company. Some people on this board have been waiting for this. Just letting them know.
yeah, sure!!the Insultan

Another airborne spamvertisement. you guys do this every 2 or 3 months, and always act so damn innocent.
Go away! Go back to stuffing the reviews with your fake testimonials!

There are plenty of people interested in Airbornes, even if they are not in the market for one, including me. Some people like bikes, all bikes.

You can't possibly think that everyone who posts about Airbornes works for the company. Would you say that about post related to any other brand.

This Airborne bashing is silly. Some people here are trying their best to make bashing them "chic," but it's still silly, and lacking proof.

I just wonder who Pilot is. I have never seen him post here before and it is strange for such a post to just appear. if a regular posted something like that I don't think it would be a big deal. but a random person just posting that is going to raise red flags of SPAM.

This place is full of random, one time, posters. Usually they are from people attacking others. "SPAM" isn't exactly a regular, and "the Insultan" only appears for nastiness.

I understand your point, though. Maybe someone just doesn't want to get flamed away for the Airborne post. I don't know, but still I don't think it's warranted.

"Pilot"=bet he has an Airborne?Hirohito

If Pilot really is from Airborne, it's hard to imagine (s)he'd be naive enough to think that a textless self-promoting post like this would be well-received here. The post was so blatant that I'd be inclined to think Pilot is not really from Airborne. Unless of course, (s)he really is from Airborne and was so blatant in order to make us believe (s)he's not from Airborne, getting in the advertising without the flak. Unless of course...

BTW, this PC "(s)" stuff is killing me. :-)

You got it right, weird as it may seem.

But wouldn't a dedicated Airborne devote already know about the configurator? Airborne is a virtual company and there always does seem to be a bunch of covert promoting going on. How is one really going to use the info or what discussion does it stir? Are there really people that have been pining for an Airborne, but now that the configurator is availible they can finally fullfill their dreams?

Sure, innocent until proven guilty, but the occurence and timing of the posts has to be questioned unless one spends their life under a rock. Ultimately he wasn't really bashing Airborne (unless it really is someone that works for them) just the poster. It's about as usefll as me posting that my super market finally has onion bagels. Are people now going to run out and buy them?

I guess some people got bent out of shape over that water bottle thing, and the bad taste lingers. I never thought it was much of big deal (this either, for that matter).

There may very well be people interested in buying an Airborne, particularly a new carbon/Ti model, which is available to the world via the internet, unlike your local onion bagels.

People post about new things here all the time, it seems. I remember a post about the Colnago CT1 getting the B-Stay like the C-40 -- sort of the same idea.

Either way, this isn't something that's going to make anyone lose sleep.

Incidentally, I think $1799 is too much for that frame, if I read that right.

Check further down - "Pilot" just shows up to provide a link to Airborne (kid was asking about a Specialized vs. C'dale) and then is gone. Ultimately it seems pretty likely that they're promoting their operation while pretending to be innocent and helpful. Sorta like Suzzi Rottencrotch providing a map to her house anytime some one brings up the subject of relationships. "What, lil' old me?" That is what irks people - that plus not being able to get a water bottle since I wasn't an Airborne owner.....

BTW - My onion bagels are built to order and can be shipped anywhere in the world - what's your size? ;-)
OK, let's settle this -- "Pilot", who are you? nmDog

Do you really think someone from Airborne would use the name pilot? Maybee "PILOT" is a pilot who happens to have an Arborne.
If you look hard enough you will see that I have many posts not related to Airborne. In fact, I think that was only the second time I used the "A" word.
So, are you "pilot"?? nmDog

I heard from a freind of a friend that They all ride Airbornes over in the Mideast. They cost about $2 apiece and say Huffy on them
