    I cannot believe that's a real product. I truly hope it is not. And what's with the optional shoulder belt? Surely this is a joke. Is it April 1?

    My buddy Tony used his many decades of metal working skills and brought Jennifer's tow hitch cover back to life. It was bent up and showed a lot of surface rust. Jennifer said it's better than new!

    So yeah, the manufacture of a smart phone is less intrusive to the environment than putting a piece of paper in a box. Good to know...

    I revisited this twice and speculated thrice and still cannot understand what you are saying.

    PNW Components requires you to have a computer or smartphone to access the user manual online.
    Producing a computer or smartphone uses considerably more resources than printing a piece of paper and including it in the package.

    That is all.
    Easy peasy.....

    I think people who buy a PNW component are more inclined to buy a bike suitable for the part than to buy a phone or computer to understand it. Even that notion seems backwards. Regardless, I assume these consumers have both items already in their toolkits to compliment the component. Next time I release an EIR for public review, and you are in the mailing radius, I’ll be sure to send you all 4,000 pages double sided rather than the one-page notice with a web link to Mission Viejo’s website where you can review it electronically.

    Maybe your photo was a comment on you buying a dropper. I took it as a comment on their lack of paperwork given your field of interest.
    Still not sure if one or the other, so I'll take it as dual meaning.

    But anyway,my point is that companies now assume and require a smart phone to access some of the features if not all. And I have issues with that.
    And I do recognize this is a syptom of my passive aggressive behavior and I'm ok with that.

    Yes I have a phone, but very often do not carry it as it is an electronic leash of sorts.

    So Thank you for printing and mailing the EIR to me. As I'd just print it anyway if it was of interest. As they are starting to build right behind me then it's very possible I'll receive one. :thumbsup:

    ( and I'll measure the thickness of the paper pile:) )

    My dad holds the same sentiment re: hard copies. If there were a paper manual, I’d lose it with the junk mail or magazines or utility bills around the house and resort to the PDF on their website when I need information. PNW’s approach also allows for amendments to the instructions as consumer feedback is received.

    I still receive hand-written comments to EIRs from select folks, all of which are old-school civil engineer types in Public Works departments. Maybe on my last day of employment, I’ll respond on a paper napkin and submit it for the public record.

    I design on "paper napkins". Really almost anything I can sketch on. My hand sketches have more info and better representation than any 3D model and I do it 99% faster. I can create 3D models but who has the time for that?. I sketch in pen, so you need to be confident on what you strike to the paper, there is no going back after the rollerball hits the bond. My first concepts are almost always perspective which allows the people you are helping "See" the solution right there right now.
    Happy pen and ink trails

    we machine to orthogonal drawings, I do those in pen and ink too. Plumbers I give in 3D as they can work better to 3D when we are stuffing a 10 lb pile into a 1 lb bag. They especially like it when I am designing Superpressure systems as they do not bend.
