Pledge to Boycott Specialized Bicycles Until They Stop Asserting Ownership Over the Word "Roubaix"

29 Signatures Goal: 1,000

"Roubaix" is a town in France, not a trademark owned by Specialized Bicycle Components (SBC) or any other entity. SBC's scare tactics and other heavy-handed attempts to exert ownership over this word are appalling. For these reasons, the undersigned people pledge to boycott all SBC products until the company abandons its attempts to coerce other businesses into giving up the use of this or any other word that is clearly in the public domain.

    No chance of ever buying S-word products until there is a change. Shame on you.

    VERY heavy handed, but maybe they like the publicity. Ant publicity is good publicity? Hope not.

    If that is all the creativity Specialized has to offer, I am not interested anyway. But hands off Roubaix. That is a name that belongs to all cycling fans!
