I thought I should update the story that I wrote about a few days ago, to wrap it up, but also to give credit where credit it due…sort of.

Mike Sinyard, founder and CEO of Specialized Bikes, braved the cold Canadian winter to travel up to Cochrane and have breakfast with Dan of Café Roubaix, apologizing in person. This was the first official word from Specialized, I think, and the crisis team definitely came up with a great way of finally saying something. I couldn’t find the video on YouTube yet, so here’s the post from Dan’s FB page.
Pat yourselves on the back while you’re at it. This is a rare victory for the Great Unwashed.
