F$&@ it, I'll probably get blasted for this, but....I don't feel one bit sorry. You know why?
Because of shit like this from you: I've owned three Dimonds. All have been great bikes. Like ABSOLUTELY EVERY BIKE I've ever owned, there are things I would change about them. What's great about working with Dimond is how fast many of those things HAVE been changed in the two years I've been working with them. And none of the things I desire to change are (or were) things that I think should keep someone from buying a Dimond.
Lots of folks, myself included, asked your opinions of the Dimond in very recent months, including via PM's, and you lied your ass off. You never spoke of any major issues. Now you want people to fund a defence for you. Piss off.

You will not hear a peep of criticism from me on this. I have had to think about that every single day for quite some time. And I will have to continue to think about this for quite some time. I did not write that believing it was a lie. I wrote that wanting myself to have it be true. I don't offer that as a defense of any sort. Simply a statement. I do not expect it to change your feelings. It was the posts like yours that I knew would come. And which I knew would hit me the hardest.
