Ok... I know this may sound a little strange.
A while back I read an article about how the 2003 Rubi was created, and inside info on what actually went on to make it happen. Stuff like doing mods out of pocket, and how it ignored internal quality standards for the tires (they are to loud)

I can't seem to find the article, but I was wondering if you could shed some light on the whole process of how the Rubi managed to make it to production. I remember reading how you guys tested different lockers, how you guys sneaked it into the cooperate trail rides and many other things. I just can't seem to find the article again, and someone asked me about.

If you are willing to write your own story of what went down, I would be more than happy to pass it along. It was a really interesting read, and I thought it was cool how you guys stood up for what you knew would sell.

I also remember something about initial estimates for sales being met with pre-orders before production even started.

Once again, thanks in advanced, it was a really interesting read, and if I could find it again, I would be really happy.
