There appears to be no significant difference between the two bicycles in this Fleet Farm ad, spotted by colleague Sara Meyer in a local paper.

An “aggressor” bike is generally a sturdy mountain bike. Presumably, an angel bike is less sturdy, less able to take what the world can throw at it.

About the blogger
Bob Collins retired from Minnesota Public Radio in 2019 after 12 years of writing NewsCut and pointing out to complainants that posts weren’t news stories. A son of Massachusetts, he was a news editor 1992-1998, created the MPR News regional website in 1999, invented the popular Select A Candidate, started several blogs, and every day lamented that his Minnesota Fantasy Legislature project never caught on.
