Since I have no power over anyone else’s behavior, I cannot issue an “ultimatum.“ (Seriously – look up the definition of the word “ultimatum.“ You are misusing the word.) But I do think my suggestion is
constructive; after all, in a market economy, the consumer’s ultimate power is in voting with his/her pocketbook. Simply put, if you do not like the DK, then take your registration fees elsewhere. The market will respond with the sorts of events that people really do want to be offered.
DK and some other events have grown to a point where a lot of elitism crept in and barriers put up and has become less inclusive. If people take issue with that and want to discuss it here then so be it. Telling people if you don't like it than go somewhere else just don't seem all that constructive to me.
A great set of wheels will make an average frame ride better. It doesn't work the other way around. ~ridemagnetic
