And with those. Out go most of mine.
Curmudgeonly as it may not be, I can no longer ignore that certain technologies are here to stay until such a time that they are replaced by other essentially unnecessary innovations.
Some things I said probably never to (that is in the past) are in the nearly about phase of actually happening.
- TAPERED HEADTUBE
- REAR THRU AXLE
Below is a production interpretation of what I mean but I suspect that you already know what they both mean because (unlike me) you haven’t been an ignorant ass living under a cycling tech shit pile for the past part of two years.
Like that, it is now starting.
The WHY is mostly obvious.
To bring the diSSent back within the realm of pseudo currency.
And another WHY is lesserly obvious.
To empty the warehouse of remaining (currently less current) inventory so that I might and for once free myself of inventory poverty (pay bills) and claim my place as mostly profitable cycling magnate.
Details of the former and latter are both forthcoming.
Expect a newsletter clearing out ALC inventory shortly.
The HOW is a little different.
The diSSent ALC Mk.V will not be designed, manufactured and sold in high hopes. The diSSent ALC Mk.V will be sold in a KickStarting fashion with pre-orders taken for a period of 30 days…if minimums are met production will proceed for the lucky few…else…it will be shit canned along with my dreams of appearing as a Teen Beat center fold dressed as Chewbacca.
How to pre-purchase is also forthcoming.
Target sale date: The Soon of November.
