I've never seen this before. Do we know who Randy is and if he'd be interested in someone (me) reviving this content?

Randy is a member here, mostly in C&V and I believe he sold the rights to the site.

Yeah, thats whats happening- engineers in Asia are designing frames and giving slight concessions to a random guy with a small devoted following who would never buy any of the bikes those engineers are designing.**

Or, there is little to no downside to designing a frame to accept a 30mm tire compared to a 28mm tire and so its adjusted.
