Urban Velo

Who’s your favorite bike journalist?

hunterBicycle Retailer has a little survey up on their website asking readers, “Who is your favorite cycling journalist?”

I’m sure I’ll lose by a dreadful margin, but maybe some of you folks will help me not look so bad. Visit www.bicycleretailer.com and vote in the poll to the right of the screen.

    I don’t know, Jeff…I fear you don’t give yourself enough credit! Chalk up one more vote for you. Right now, you’re dominating the survey.

    You were the best art director also at that last mag. It just isn’t as good now.

    Dreadful margin, huh? It is looking like you are pull this off to me. You certainly got my vote.

    I think Chipps is asleep at the wheel. Once he lets his legions know about the contest, he’ll win handily.

    looks like you are still in the lead there Jeff, on another note there is a picture of you sportin the clysdale kit in the other magazine this month

    On another note, that other magazine has a post on their forum looking for votes while complaining that others are doing the same. That’s like them.

    bitches (reply to bill) You rock Jeff

  13. TerryApril 8, 2009 at 8:52 pm

    I tell you for a fact that the “other” magazine’s forum went to hell when Jeff left. They just do not have a clue how to deal with people (that don’t always agree with them).

    Wow! After dropping into third place in a slow and steady voting pattern, Maurice jumps into first place after gaining more than 500 votes in less than an hour–a voting increase which equals almost 25% of the total votes. Those guys really know how to stuff a ballot box.

    Yeah, mountain bikers everywhere learned a thing or two from George Bush.

    It was funny really. I went there to vote and you were up by over 200 votes, Mike Ferrentino was in second place, Maurice was in third with less than 400 votes. I was paging though the website and looking at this and that, and when I went back to the voting, Maurice had gained about 50 votes. So I refreshed the screen and he had gained another 4 or 5. I was on the internet for about another hour and before I turned in off, I went back to the poll and Maurice had gained about 500 votes from when I was there before.

    Acorn would probably hire those guys for lessons on ballot box stuffing.

    As predicted, Jeff did not come out on top but we all know who really won. And lost, big. Thanks for the support everyone!

  19. TerryApril 13, 2009 at 4:59 pm

    Those guys must be really pissed about your success with your new magazine.

  20. Jim C.April 16, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    I mentioned this on a thread on dirtrag’s forum when they were asking for votes. They pulled the thread.
