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.

Prestige MTB on the east coast is the authorized distributor and service center. They can handle any service or repair you may need. The forks only need service once a year under hard riding, you can get 1.5-2 years for average use.

Cube, Birzman, Hope - Eurobike 2014
Unfortunately PB missed an important detail I saw on another site regarding the new Hope cranks. They aren't quite ready for sale because they've decided to scrap the polygon standard for splined setup. Apparently it will make the switch to carbon down the road easier. Regarding the E13 polygon system, its a German DIN standard that is used in several industrial and military applications. It would be difficult to pursue any legal action over something so readily available to anyone who wants to use it.
