DVO's Emerald Fork - The Journey From Concept to Reality
Yeah, the weight is shocking. At 7.2 lbs it's quite a bit heavier than everyone else's old gen forks, let alone the new ones. Weight isn't everything blah blah blah, and I agree as my bikes are not built like that at all, but an extra 1-1.3 lbs or whatever at the handlebars is a lot.

2013 Mavic Crossride wheelset. 15mm through-axle front, 142x12mm through-axle rear. This is an excellent factory wheelset. It comes with straight-pull bladed spokes, and is super light (1815 grams). I got them brand new on a complete bike in the summer and they've seen very little use. They are identical to the catologue pictures in this ad, and are basically in just as perfect condition (let me know if you're interested and want actual photos). This is a complete factory wheelset for basically the price of two new rims.

Pinkbike Poll: Are You Scared of Change?
One example that really pisses me off is the clutch rear derailleur that is only produced in 10 speed. I have a 9-speed Saint drivetrain and every time I replace a rear derailleur I would love to put a clutch one on, but I would have to replace my shifter, cassette and chain too. That is forced obsolescence, and that's the side of "progress" I can't stand.

Pinkbike Poll - Should Racing Be Restricted to Production Bikes and Components?
I think the biggest advantage of a factory team would be having the personnel support at the races - a personal mechanic to clean, maintain, and tune your bike after every ride, professional suspension tuning, a pile of brand new wheels sitting there so you can smash into anything in your runs without worrying about your wheels, brand new tires every time, travel arrangements, food, etc. I think that would be waaaaaaaaay more impactful than having parts that are a year or so newer than production. Think about it this way, some frames are definitely better than others, but racers willingly ride all sorts of different bikes these days unlike back in the day when teams were re-badging Intense M1's (I think?) because it was clearly an advantageously better bike. So, it's OK to be on an inferior product, as long as it's the latest from that manufacturer? Do you really think being on the newest tech is all about performance? Their sponsors are promoting their products - that's why they have a team.
