If you say so... lots of guys in the enduro rigs article with no chainguide, though.

Trickstuff Cleg 4 Disc Brake - Review
& to really get into the nitty gritty of why a Lexus costs more, they also use designers for those cars that cost a lot more per hour. It's not just about materials & manufacturing. But I think it'd be hard to argue the same about these brakes, as they are butt ugly, & have some questionable engineering descisions applied to them, like that bolt for the lever pivot.

As does that marketing, it's part of the cost of the car as well. & since part of the value of a Lexus is in it's cachet, that money increases the value of the car you bought, not just how much Toyota made off it: you'll get a higher resale value from a Lexus than a Scion. If the marketing doesn't work though, all they've done is increase their cost without benefit. Ask Microsoft about Surface, or Blackberry about anything they've done in the last 4 years.

I'd still lock out the shock of an XC bike on fire road or blacktop climbs. Might be why he has it.

You keep talking about it like it's cutting corners. It isn't necessarily. Just because there's a difference, doesn't mean there's a PERCEPTIBLE difference. Differences measurable in the lab aren't always significant in the real world.

Sam Hill's Nukeproof Mega and Prototype DH Bike - Crankworx Rotorua
The joke predates western nations considering anything soviet being distinct from "the rooskies." you wanna use jokes from the 80s, you gotta understand 80s casual racism.

True, but I think there's still worlds away more design in that lambo than these brakes. & at least there's some charm to the lambo. 1st generation Jeep Cherokees were boxy, but they won all sorts of design awards. This brake's design just looks like they simplified things to reduce costs, but then charge more than almost anything on the market.
