I’m no longer creating new posts.
After 165 Snap Judgments, I evaluated most of the bikes I know well enough to have really strong opinions about, so updates have devolved into choosing yet another bike to profile somewhat arbitrarily. That doesn’t really engender passion for the subject at hand. Also, the amount of time spent doing the necessary research to develop an informed decision about a bike I’m not personally as familiar with once or twice a week was at times significant. It began to feel like a bit of obligatory drudgery, rather than an opportunity to have fun thinking and learning about the bikes I love most. So, I chose to close the book on Snap Judgments permanently.
I didn’t take this decision lightly, because I feel an obligation to the small cadre of readers who read Snap Judgments regularly during 2010 and 2011. Thanks to everybody who’s taken the opportunity let me know how much you enjoy this site. Thanks for reading and supporting the site,
