Where are all the Ladies? A Technical University Just for Women
Comparing the technology, cost of materials, and workmanship in a purse to bike is bananas, even a $2500 one.

Park Tool Adjustable Torque Driver - Review
Seriously!!! A test of seeing how close the actual torque values are is a bare minimum IMO. Additionally, a comparison to other torque wrenches and their accuracy and prices would be nice as well.

Video: The One Shot - Brandon Semenuk's unReal Segment
It was an awesome drop in!!! I was thinking wouldn't it be awesome if the dh bike was on a special mount hanging over the drop, and he comes off the kicker on the pbike, ditches it, then lands on the dh bike?!? That would've blown this sequence out of the water...

Santa Cruz Bicycles SOLD
Pon is no Trek, that is for sure, although if they combined all of their brands under their largest that would certainly make their presence a lot bigger. They now have 10 bike brands, it is a huge waste of money to market 10 brands rather than 1-3, maybe this is their grand plan, it would be mine if I owned them. They are probably competing against themselves at this point in some brands. You would think they could have huge economies of scale in marketing, support, design, manufacturing, parts sourcing, etc.

ENVE Goes Wide With HV Rims: First Look
The higher cost has some to do with labor, hiring an unskilled American worker (even at minimum wage) is still 3-5x the cost of a Chinese one. If your labor per rim is 10 hours, that is a $100 cost increase right there, which translates into a $200 wholesale cost increase, and $400 retail cost increase. The other reasons for higher cost are most likely all marketing related.

New Pinkbike Apparel In Stock
I find it funny how companies get everyone to pay them to advertise for them. All Pinkbike shirts should be free and come with a $20 giftcard.

Scott Launch 27.5" Plus Bikes
I would too, for all we know if you decrease a normal tire to 1 bar it has the same contact patch and rolling resistance as the plus tire. I would bet it has a marginally lower patch and rolling resisting, meaning plus size is a yawn.
