Kali Maraka XC Helmet - Review
It's so damn ugly. Sorry not digging the style of it nor the price.

Specialized S-Works Enduro 29 - Reviewed
Well, people can afford a $10k bike it's just a matter of whether or not they believe it's worth it. For example a motorcycle like a Susuki Hayabusa fully loaded is around $15k. Granted it is faster and has a legit motor that'll make you feel as if you're going warp speed. Still, it's $15k yet people will buy it because they feel it's worth it. All I'm saying is it's subjective to a point when it comes to pricing. Companies learn from sales and the bottom line. If there are people who believe something is worth the price and buy it then companies will continue to mark up prices. Even if that technology isn't advanced or costly to make. After all they have to market the stuff and that in itself isn't cheap.

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
@bkm303 Hmmm, I thought there were more proprietary parts. I remember reading something about you having to use a special type of chain as well. You couldn't just use an old XTR or XT rear derailleur with the new cassette as well. I could be wrong though.

SRAM X01 Drivetrain - Review
Yeah, the price is overkill I think we can all agree to that. They are making these for the elite as well as the rich to make up a pretty penny before the price for it gets lower in the years to come. Yes, you can get a 42T cog for $80-$100 from different companies but you're still at a 1x10 system. Not 1x11 which is what the SRAM does. Shimano having released their 1x11, 2x11, and even 3x11 is super expensive as well and also is proprietary. So do what I do and wait. For now my 1x10 drivetrain (Raceface NW) is perfect for me so I don't see a desperate need to get to a 1x11 any time soon.

Scott Elite BOA Shoe - Review
I'd love to try these but I'm on flats. My 5.10's are bad ass but I may consider giving clipless a try.

Video: Sam Pilgrim - California
Anyone know the name and artist of the song in the video? I tried using my iPhone app but couldn't detect the song. Killer video as always and glad Sam's doing well after his crash~
