Pinkbike Awards: Game Changer of the Year – Nominees
Even if its a one year contract, why would they dump a proven winning formula? Seems silly to finally get the program on track and then change it again.

SRAM X01 DH - Review
Cost saving tip: if you want the performance of the XO1 DH derailleur without having to buy a new freehub and that expensive cassette, they actually make a 10 speed version of the XO1 DH derailleur in both short and medium cage. I never see it advertised but I have one. You can run it with any 10 speed shifter and cassette. Works flawlessly.

Race Face Atlas Pedal - Review
That's full keystone retail, you will be able to find them for much cheaper than that if you have a friendly shop in your area.

Interbike Tech-Fest: Special Nerd Worshippers Edition
Been a huge Thomson fan forever, but with those new Hope cranks coming out, they really need to step up the finish of their cranks if they expect anyone to buy them aftermarket. They need to fully surface it and add edging and shaping, so it matches the finish of their stems and posts.

New Fork Technology From BOS
Never said something made in Taiwan is of lesser quality. I use a ton of Taiwanese parts and enjoy them immensely. But as a tax-paying bike shop owner I appreciate and attempt to support domestically produced products to a reasonable degree. I'm not going to run an inferior product because its made here, but if I have a choice of equal products I'm going with domestic. Supporting your fellow worker makes your life better, because instead of milking welfare they're out spending a paycheck and feeding the machine.

Actually Fox does all of the precision machining for internals and all assembly inhouse in Cal. I know that they have the castings and most of the forgings done in Taiwan, but they still do a ton of work in the US. They're the only major suspension player still supporting domestic labor, which is pretty cool when you consider that their pricing isn't much higher then their competitors who have everything done overseas.

I only mentioned the Fox for reference, you won't catch me on electronic anything. I'm pretty sure the main reason the X-Fusion Revel is so expensive is that its made in the USA. Each one is hand assembled in the Cal factory, so there's not much economy of scale. I dig the lifetime service plan. I'm currently on a Vengeance HLR Coil, its a great fork with usable adjustments that actually make a difference when you turn the knobs. What a concept! They are super easy to rebuild also. Tempted to switch to the Revel tho, it sounds like it sound be amazing..

www.prestigemtb.com, site is basic and it doesn't mention Bos but I own a shop in Issaquah, WA and I've ordered from him. His name is Marc and he's been great to work with. He's received the factory service training in France and is certified to perform all maintenance and repairs. If you have a MTB focused shop in your area they can setup an account and get you the product as well. Forks feel firm in the parking lot test but thats because they're properly damped, on the trail it all comes together.
