Deals Galore: Over 60,000 Bikes and Parts for Sale on Pinkbike's Buy/Sell Page
Walk into a Hyundai dealership. Find a new i35. Open the driver's door. Feel the weight of the door and listen to the noise it makes when you slam it shut. Walk into a VW dealership. Find a new Golf. Open the driver's door. Feel the weight of the door and listen to the noise it makes when you slam it shut. I really don't care where they are made, but do this experiment and then wonder why one depreciates more than the other the minute it drives out of the dealership.

What's wrong with that? I stand behind everything I sell. And when I sell parts I tell them to bring their bike and I'll install it.

On the other side of the deal, I only ever sell local. I want the buyer to walk into my shed, see how good the bike is, see my new bike (the only reason I'm getting rid of the old one), see that I have all the tools to maintain it, and I tell them that if they have any problems to come back to me. My prices are very fair and I always get exactly what I ask for - first viewer always takes it. My last two bikes were sold without even having to advertise - I had previous buyers chasing me!

"Sweatshops". Really? Is that how some of you perceive all Asian workplaces?

Nah... not until it has a flourescent lime green collar for going up the hills, and a thicker orange one for going down.

Riding FOX's RAD Suspension
http://www.pinkbike.com/news/2010BoXXerRelease.html “The first step for the team was to determine the size of chassis to be developed. During the development of the Totem, RockShox had determined that 40mm served well for a long travel single crown fork in helping generate additional stiffness, but on a dual crown it would create too much stiffness. The concern with creating a fork that was too stiff is that it can deflect off of some bumps, knocking the wheel offline and providing additional hand feedback. Both things our BlackBox riders didn’t want."

When they redeveloped the Boxxer some years ago they tried going to larger diameter stanchions, but the test riders didn't go as fast because there was less fore/aft compliance and the riders were less comfortable. That was reported here on PB. I'll see if I can dig up the article.
