Where is Rapp's statement he promised?

When Rapp pulled the plug on his gofundme campaign, he mentioned that he would be releasing a formal statement.......things have been quiet since then. Where is it?

    Same place as my pending FTP increase announcement. #sworry, unnecessarily snarky.

    Was that his engineering solution to the supposed seat tube issues on the Dimond?

    He's still working on it, currently crafting a brilliant 574th paragraph.

    The statement has now transitioned into an analysis of the pothole that he avoided during the 36th bike mile of Santa Rosa 70.3.

    He got busy writing a glowing review for Dash saddles

    I love the fact that after what he admitted re: his Dimond reviews, and all the stink Stan made about the aero test results being published on his site, that JR can then write a glowing review on the saddle. First thing I did when I saw the title of the article and who wrote it was check the comments and sure enough, the first comment was something like "Is the saddle as good as the Dimond bike was?". I just checked now and the comment was be removed.

    gotta love it.

    At least in his saddle review he also managed to get a nice shot of his new bike.

    If only Rapp would let us know how he feels about a high end watch made in USA by one of his buddies?

    I need to spend multiple thousands of dollars on a product, and I only trust his endorsements.

    I've heard the watch runs slow on race morning and makes you miss your starting wave. I'm not saying it's a defect, but just that it's not suitable for my needs as a professional.

    Update:
    Prior to April '17 - Bike safe, great, best bike.
    April '17 - Bike dangerous, me scared, protect family.
    June '17 - Bike safe, has always been safe, pro switched to another bike due to better financial conditions.

    Perfect sense.

    The amount of shit Rapp had to eat in that joint statement is hysterical.

    Rapp made an idiotic public post.
    Rapp lied about the safety.
    Rapp is a crybaby.
    Rapp broke his contract for financial gain.

    "Ruster Sports, LLC and Jordan Rapp announce a settlement of the litigation between the parties,” according to a statement both parties released today. "This was an internal disagreement between former partners and long-time friends that went too far in becoming public. Both parties regret making their dispute public through a lawsuit and public statements. Dimond bikes are and have always been safe, and Mr. Rapp agrees. Mr. Rapp believes he had a single tolerance issue with his Dimond bikes that was unrelated to safety. While Mr. Rapp was still under contract with Dimond, he entered into another sponsorship agreement with a competitor because he believed it would be better for him financially. Mr. Tollakson and Mr. Rapp have amicably resolved this matter."

    So........is the bike safe or not?

    Wonder how much it cost Rapp to eat his words and "settle amicably"?

    Wow. I figured Rapp would have to walk back some of his claims but the settlement announcement is awesome! He comes off looking even worse than before. I am really curious about the financial terms of the settlement and if Rapp could/would? sue his original attorney for malpractice since he supposedly approved the GoFundMe and public trashing on Slowtwitch which obviously weakened his case legally.

    The bike is safe unless you are an engineer and take a Dremel, copper wire and duct tape to it in some misguided attempt to fix it yourself, rather than just asking for a new frame like any other pro would.

    He's probably regretting giving back the GoFundMe money. He could probably use it now to pay off TJ.

    Kudos and respect to Dan for giving reasonable front page coverage. The comments aggregating are hysterical. The "who is Jordan Rapp" skirmish is great.

    I always like Rapp but he sure comes out of this with shit on his face that's going to be hard to wash clean.

    I actually wondered if perhaps the statement being published on Slowtwitch was part of the settlement agreement. Maybe it was something Rapp offered or perhaps it was kindly suggested by the legal folks that Slowtwitch post the settlement outcome since they had hosted Rapp's original post with all the claims that Dimond was not safe.
