Default Re: SPOOKYTOOTH monarch fork question

I'm really sorry to hear of this for a couple of reasons. First, you are a friend whose work I greatly admire and what has happened is just plain wrong. Taking your work is awful and says something about business ethics which is not good. On top of that, to take pictures of your bikes without your permission and not give you credit, purposefully removing your company name is a low blow and the worst kind of plagiarism. This appears to be theft and misrepresentation.
The other great disappointment is with SpookyTooth who has a good reputation, is a sponsor of this forum as are you and who sponsors the death race every year. I don't get it. I have recommended Spooky Tooth to other forum members and now wonder if this situation is something very much out of the ordinary (I hope so) or if more of this same attitude of anything goes is part of their business plan. I hope Spooky Tooth is reading this thread and responds to it directly. I hope things are somehow made right. Once rung, the bell cannot be unrung, but at least on can stop ringing it. I'm sorry, Norm.
Someday when I grow up I will probably lose interest in toys with wheels, but until then...
