Deity: New Digs in Idaho
@chasejj: Fair enough! Without the knowledge of Deity actually "manufacturing" their parts "in- house"(didn't see any machines or signs of them) I jumped ahead of myself a bit. I have done the numbers a few times for my own designs and found it damn near impossible to design, buy material, create, engineer, test and market parts in the USA and be PROFITABLE. IMMPOSSIBLE!(ok extremely difficult) for a small company to be profitable without some level of serious financial backing, or selling out. Everybody wants their cut, it's the American way! Thus....cheap Chinese labor. Deity has the right idea, but I must agree, Chris King IS the great example. China opened up a shop(w/ vietnamese workers) in our area and undercut everyones estimates by sometimes a nickel per part! OUTRAGEOUS!!! Lost a couple of big contracts we had for over 5 years. Went to their shop to see it, "Brand new" machines, 7 to be exact ($$$$), and 10 machinists(?)all making 9$/hr!!! USA?

Deity: New Digs in Idaho
Awesome story! Great to hear there are people "IN IT" for the ride AND riders,and NOT the almighty $$$! Damn shame there aren't more companies with this mindset! Being a (recently laid-off) machinist I know all too well the cost factors involved in programming, extrusion, tooling, testing, marketing, etc., so for Deity to grow AND expand, AND hold onto the core values that has made them "DEITY", and STAY successful is a true American success story. Congratulations! Thank you Sadie, Eric and staff. Looks like I'll be replacing my straitline peds sooner than I thought. I'm a bit of a pedal breaker, so I'm interested in the new forthcoming designs.(already know the bars,stems and frames are ROCK SOLID) Can only imagine the industry offers you'll be turning down now! Just hit 'em with a NO thank you and a big fat smile!

Opinion: My Favorite Bike
The first bike I ever had! Red junker with rat trap pedals, quill stem, and a coaster brake. But getting set free to go All the way around the block?!? That day changed my world forever! Yup, Red rat trap quill stemmed coasterbraked junker, all time favorite! All the others are just improvements.( I still don't know how I used to jump trash cans with a coaster brake!)

Banned in the USA: Part 1
Ain't America great! Thanks Government, everyday you seem to make (un)America become a bigger joke than the last dumb thing you did! Sorry grandpa, you( your generation) left us a great and wonderful place only to be run down into ashes by a bunch of political douchbags. (And that's an insult to d-bags, at least they provide a positive service to society!)

In Memoriam: Mark Dunlop
Things have to be really fogged up for mountain biking not to be able to at least get you to that NEXT ride. Sorry for the loss. I wish that people suffering could just see that suicide is really just an emotional, ever heavy burden left behind to weigh on those who loved 'em most. I hate how these stories make me sad for ALL the other stories.Go Ride today anyway!

Wow, what a great photo, as usual for Mr. Lorence, but looking close, the only person looking up(and pointing) is Kelly. With the setting sun shining bright on his face. Probably just me. Didn't know McGazza, but I miss him already.
