Default Re: Gas Bike Magazine - Contributors Wanted

I wouldn't mind making a contribution at some point. I would like very much to see this publication succeed. That said, here I am jumping on the "change the name" bandwagon.

After what just transpired back there, I think you will have a much easier time getting off the ground with a name that sounds rather more different from GasBike. That name seems to very quickly conjure feelings of animosity, ill will, resentment, and anger among our members who have been mistreated by this company. You'll spend a lot of your time explaining yourself.

That, and with a name that mentions "GAS bike", most folks might not be expecting to find articles on electrics as well.

I am truly not trying to criticize. I merely agree with others, in that a name change might be a good way to get the ball rolling.
