They pigeon holed themselves and now they're tripping over what they've previously said. It doesn't look good when you take a rider of T.

When you say that i cant help but think of Bataleon. I know TBT is the shit, but they have so much extreme marketing about how TBT is the best thing since edges on a snowboard that if they or someone else comes up with a better version of it they look like idiots.

Mervin is already on the offensive though so they dont look like idiots..they will probably call it the "Next Evolution" of Banana tech..even though its nothing like it..
