You Can Call Me Joe -- A Joe V Blog
Joe V

Hi, I’m Joe V. The V is for Vadeboncoeur, but no one ever really calls me that (except my business card). That card also calls me the Global Director of Product Development, Marketing and Creative Design for Trek Bicycle. Yep, I am sometimes not really sure what all that means either. I do know that I dig bikes, oatmeal, motorcycles, burritos, the weird things I see along the way, my family and my job. I get to travel the world helping make great bikes, so it’s a pretty great gig.

They're "illusions", not "allusions" - there's a difference. Similarly, "pedals" as opposed to "petals," unless this bike has some unexpectedly floral equipment. I just point this out so that the presumably intentional silliness and pomposity ("I love the word 'fast'.") can shine through. After all, "it's all about the details."

Good call. Proofreading your own posts is never a good idea I guess. Thanks for reading...and the english lesson!

If the bike is meant to be anything but a pose mobile, then why doe it have such slack geometry? A Schwinn Varsity has steeper angles. I would think a designer might do his homework and at least google around and see what angles (closer to 74 degrees, Mr. Leighton) people are using on track/pursuit bikes. Why a 650c wheel in front with no clearance for barspins. Again the designer should have done his homework and found out why there is a trend on the street towards a smaller front wheel.
