Don't know the validity of it, but he states he's an Engineer.

 

As if that gives anyone authority. Ha.

Only mentions it every third sentence.

The bike was unsafe, I'm an engineer. I signed with cause I liked them and I'm an engineer.

Do pros have to register at a race like Age Groupers?  

If so he would have been forced to walk past the Diamonds bike stand at the expo.

He said he has a lawyer who approved his post.

To me, it seems foolish and opening himself up to further litigation by admitting he lied and provided false advertising to others. Either that or hes lying now about thinking them unsafe.

Either way, doesnt seem a good move and something a lawyer should have advised against. Wheaties packet?

 

Plus loss of value to those who have one?

Just looks like a massive flog.

Rarely has Slowtwits been more appropriate.

I've followed Rapp for a while, bright guy, cutting edge thoughts etc etc  re aero etc ...
This sucks and reaks of sales spin when he was sponsered, too dangerous for him yet he then thought it would be nice to give the bike away.  WTF dude ?
Credibility = zero zilch naught nufin GAME OVER  

As for DIAMOND. They are not much better ...

It looks like the GFM page has been taken down. They've either settled or Rapp has seen sense in asking for $.

They've both destroyed each others brands by letting this go public. Had it been a big name athlete aka Macca, Frodo or big name brand the like I reckon they would've weathered this kind of storm just fine. But they're both tiny "battler" brands that have just done irreparable damage IMO. 

Who is ever going to want to get on board with rapp after this? Who would trust a very different bike brand that might not be safe? Idiots.

I have decided to end the GoFundMe and refund all donations. More than ever being about the money, I was looking for support. And that has been made extremely clear. So thank you. The value of that support is invaluable.

The thread could have showed him that!  Asking people for money, seeing who/how many pony up, and then refunding it, is just an ego trip!

You sign a 5yr contract for the $$$$$

You do what they want.

I can't believe people are backing him with $$$$

Maybe he thinks he is Jarryd Hayne!

I believed refunding the money was the right thing to do. I am working with my counsel to prepare a formal statement explaining. I'd ask for your patience and understanding in the interim
 
 
Same counsel that aplroved the first post?

He should have asked Crowie as to how he was able to exit Orbea.

He should have asked Macca as to how he was able to exit Hawaii :)
