Video: Rap Battle - Mountain Biker Vs. Road Biker
I have always said roadies were lame. I have had to eat a lot of crow now that I love road riding. I still MTB but I spilt my time between the two. However roadies are lazy. I am not saying they are not athletic but they are lazy. Case in point, roadies don't create their roads nor do they even clean them up after a winter storm. Mt bikers do not get this luxury.

Fair point Deeeight, but I see no reason why they cannot insure for the value but still have an invoice for the country of destination as to what was paid for the product. I could buy a $ 10000 diamond but only pay $100 for it. Sh!tty analogy I know but, value and price paid are quite different. Then again to call my knowledge of import and tax laws ignorant would be a very generous statement.

My Issue was not with having to pay for the import duties as such, but rather with CRC declaring the package with MSRP rather then what I paid for it. I am aware of my responsibilities ( most of the time) when importing and it is a balance between a good deal and a trip to the LBS when you calculate taxes, shipping and exchange rates. When you buy an item at say 50% off but then pay twice the tax on it, it bites into your good deal margin. I don't know why CRC declares the MSRP rather than the Price at which I paid.

The Problem that I experienced when ordering from Chain reaction was that when the products when through customs I was charged taxes based on the MSRP rather then the sale price of the item. That was a bit of a head scratcher as I can't figure out why this was done. If a retailer decides to sell something at a lower cost I pay the tax on that cost not MSRP.

Pinkbike Poll: Have Bikes Become Too Complicated?
Don't forget the introduction of having to have everything in Purple anodize. Flexy cranks and Panaracwer Smoke n Dart tires. the first round of shitty suspension, RS1 and oil blow ups, Manitou and the only good on warm days elastomers. Sometimes we look at the past with rose tinted glasses, but the reality is the present is almost always better. For us "old" timers who remember a lot of growth it is the emotion of those early days that make it better, it was not the technology we had. Even my simple Surly rigid single speed is better then my 1988 hard rock was. better tubing, better Geo, better rims, better drivetrain and tires, by todays standards it is low tech and back to old school. If you remember old school you know its not.

First Ride: Santa Cruz Bronson Carbon - 650B Ripper
@RichardCunningham I think most of the price haters are not hating on price alone but the fact that there is no comparison (review) between a $4000 and $10000 model. Is there a $6000 difference in ride quality? durablity? Fun? or Perfomance?
