Factory Tour: Inside ENVE Composites
"will always be extortionate in price as a result" Totally false, you can already buy quality carbon rims from light bicycle for $250/ea. Once ENVEs patent expires in 10 years, and manufacturing and material sciences are more developed, I have no doubt you be able to buy this exact rim for much less than even $250.

First Look: Giro Montaro Helmet - Crankworx Whistler 2015
The safety and manufacturing molds arguments are all bullshit, the exact same safety tests and manufacturing molds are required by a $15 Bell helmet as required by law. It's 100% marketing and sales boloney that it costs so much. Pay it if you want, but know that the ONLY thing the price is based on, is the most you will pay.

First Look: Industry Nine Trail S
They look nice but there is nothing new or innovative, and are overpriced. For $372 you can build spank/MTB270 wheelset that weighs 1633g. Or for $200 more use carbon light bicycle rims and shave another 200g off. Plus you can choose from many colors.

First Ride: Cannondale Habit Carbon 1
They sell $7k bikes so you feel like you're getting a "great deal" when you buy a $2-4k version.

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.
