Awesome post by Edward Cassie on sweating the little details. I was just thinking about that at my local bike shop when I looked at the cable housing they replaced. Sure it all works fine, but instead of a black cable end (which matches the rest of the bike) they used the standard silver.
Sure they may not have had black, but they could have asked me. It’s a great shop and they do good work but they often miss the little details like that. Lucky for me I was a bike mechanic and do most of my own work or I’d have lots more little things on my bike that annoy me.
I suppose this could even circle back to the site design update. There are a lot of little details I did not sweat (comment styles) so that I just shipped code and the design. You watch though, the little details will all come together over the next few weeks.
