World's First 3D Printed Bike
The reason I know it is not possible is because we built one and there are certain parts that just cannot be 3d printed (yet). Link below you can see the black pieces that connect the rails are some of the only pieces you can actually print. http://brooklynmagicmaker.tumblr.com/

It is not possible to fully print a 3d printer. You can print pieces of a 3d printer, you cannot print the electronics (wiring, printing bed, extruder head etc.). And if you say you "read an article on it" don't believe everythig you read, its not true. If you've ever used a 3d printer you would know it is not possible.

prestonDH that is completely false. In the case of a Replicator 2, the materials cost close to nothing. If you are using a powder based printer it cost about $8 per cubic inch of material (at least where I print my things, NOT metal powder). You CAN buy a $10K home 3D printer, you'll get a tiny bed and will absolutely NOT be able to print metal. Titanium 3D printers most likely cost between $100,000 and $1,000,000, thats not to say the material itself isn't expensive but it costs much less than the cost of the printer. Also I have no idea what you mean about a solid block of titanium, this isn't a CNCed bike from a solid block of material, it's 3D printed with titanium powder. Here is an article about the costs of metal 3D printing: http://www.techhive.com/article/217015/titanium_printer_lets_you_make_your_own_overpriced_3d_printed_parts.html

Man this is absolutely amazing. Does anyone realize how much this bike costs?!? It costs me $100 to 3D print a 4"x4" cube using the powder based printers at my school. Full bike out of titanium?! The cost of this probably blows a Trek 9.9 out of the water x10.

Industry Nine 26" Gravity Wheels - Reviewed
$1200 is relatively good price for DH wheels. Hell of a lot better than $2500 for a set of Enves...

I've been running i9s for about 5 years now, 4 years on one set and they are still going strong and I beat the hell out of them. Other set is on Brooklyn RL with weird hub spacing. Great customer service!

Yeti Cycles Going Full Enduro For 2014
EnduroManiac I agree with your statement partially but you realize he came within a couple of seconds from beating Loic as a first year junior during world champs last year right? This year he himself admitted that he didn't have a stellar year but he was always in the top 30 qualified as a first year junior and his best result was 15th at Windham, + he wasn't even 18 years old yet...

Half these comments are purely idiotic, Yeti isn't forcing him to do anything. If you followed Richies instagram you'd see that he spends 90% of his time riding his sb66 and he's clearly been chilling with Jared for a while now. Granted he's in NZ at the moment but you aren't getting lift access here in CT for 6 months of the year, thats my guess as to why he's doing enduro (and he WILL kill at it). That being said he was my favorite rider to watch because I've seen him race local dh for many years and he destroys the competition, too bad we won't see him on freecaster this year because you know he would always be in the top 30 qualies. I have to find someone else to root for in wc dh now :/
