GoPro Reveals New HERO4 Session Mini Cam
the only market this thing is going to be interesting for realistically is quadcopters. I wish my GoPro was smaller, said no one ever, however lighter giving longer flight time for quads is of significant interest

Rider Perspective: What do you choose: Dual Suspension or Hardtail?
There is another dimension not mentioned to "Everybody should start out on a hardtail", which is bike maintenance. Hardtails are a lot easier to maintain!

First Look: Renthal 1XR Chainring
Can I point out to the "volume pricing" vocal lot that, when it comes to CNC the volume or precision don't actually affect the price at all. In a CNC process, which all of these are made from you load a block of metal and hit go. There are no savings by doing 1 or 5 as each one is individually cut anyway. Same for precision, its more of a machine feature and even the cheapest CNCs will be able to cut parts of this physical size accurately. So the MX sells more parts argument doesn't explain all of the comical cost difference. Where volume does make savings is process like casting or moulding. One cast or mould can be reused many times and thus spreading the cost over each individual piece made from it. I seriously doubt there are massive RnD costs associated with this as its a ring with few teeth on it. Prob not far different from MX rings and can mostly be copied over.

Opinion: Driving With Dad and the Boost Hub Standard
But its just not about outright resale value or forcing us to buy it. Its also about getting spares for it for when it snaps in half 2 weeks later and its obsolete

Opinion: The Machines Have Soul, Don't They?
Even though I'm exactly the same as you, try not to care less whats under me. The problem is when your 'friend' gets old and beyond repair, then the reality and negativity hits you. You may not want anything better, you just want the basic stuff. Then it hits you is to get exactly the same stuff its now over double the price atleast.
