This product was given to me at no charge for reviewing. I was not paid or bribed to give this review and it will have my honest opinion or thoughts through out.
The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) passed new rules going in affect December 1, 2009. These rules are that the powerhouse that is the blogosphere must put a disclaimer about the product they are reviewing. Due to many people getting paid for their great reviews of product and changing peoples perception of that product there must be that disclaimer that states if you received the product for free or paid for it, if you are being paid to review it and so on.
All sites under the Bike Shop Girl name, including BikeShopGirl.com obtain the same review process:
All reviews are for no less than 6 weeks, unless noted in review. We provide an unbiased review platform that may be brutal at times but we are brutal on our product as commuters. Regardless if the product is one from a sponsor of the website or friend we will give honest and fair opinion.
You will see a disclaimer, like the one above, on all reviewed products going forward from October 18,2009. If you have any specific questions please contact us.
