2016 Pinkbike Awards - Athlete of the Year Winner
@vinay: The fact that that comment can be considered sexist is sexist in itself...too much bullshit, and people get offended way to easy! Of course shes the best, and of course it´s beacuse of riding with her brothers and the support they gave her riding together in the same team, the same way as it because of 150 thousand more reasons, all as important!

Specialized Demo 8 I Alloy - Review
Holly cow, so many comments. So I´m not completely making up this stuff just out of hate or being a peasant, I compleley love the biking world don´t get me wrong this is just an observation and an opinion it doesnt have me up at night. I understand how the whole supply system works, I have some knowledge of bike margins from friends who work at stores and from buying straight to distributors for a racing team, and also from other industries my family owns a clothes shop. Elasticity of demand, which means that a market may not always be selling it´s efficient amount if the price is not the one most consumers are willing to pay( at least theoretically) small drop in price may create a huge increase in quantitty so profits are higher. What I meant was that when a store sells a bike 2,3,4 K bike they make some money, it´s not like in other industries where they may have a 300% margin but sell something worth 20 euros. The fact that most people never buy stuff full price, that most of the bikes we own have not been purchased new or at full price, that almost no one starts in mtb buying a brand new entry level 2k-3K bike that selling over the internet and direct is becoming more common and that there are polls about the future of bike stores kindda makes my point. I mean, yeah bike stores and brands aren´t getting super rich, but I do beleive that they could be making more money or at least selling more bikes, or at least mannaging to make clear why they should be there. Maybe u guys have an awesome bike store close by, it´s not that way in many places, and most bikes are more expensive in europe than in the US dont forget so its even more ridiculously priced. That said, of course, I will keep buying whatever I beleive is best for me, always trying to avoid online or direct, and supporting my local bike shop, as long as it´s the place I think it should be and the prices are sensible Anyways, we should like grab a beer or something and discuss it, cause men I hate typing so much.

@mikekazimer: 4000 bucks for a base model entry level bike, even if it is specialized is bullshit, and I would never buy direct, but the margin on bikes is way to high. It´s not about if other brands are doing the same nonsense pricing spec, its about wether or not it´s correcctly priced. The stores and distributors get a very high margin compared to other industries. Bikes are overpriced. We pay for them though, so it gives them a reason to keep putting prices up, hopefully that will change and it is changing. It doesnt make sense that most people now feel like paying the full price for stuff makes them dumb... I mean really? does that make sense? Just lower intial prices. Overall the biking market is bullshit, and people are getting tired of it, I mean, you spend 3,4,6,7 K on a bike which the same company who sold it to you tries to tell you is crap one season after? Short term business perspective, very immature, unprofessional market. I could go on and on about reasons why its that way, dirtbikes are better priced, direct sale brands are increasing, if a company invested properly in the market it would blow away most brands... And again, I love bike boutiques, I never buy online or direct... but some things just stink. And I will still probably buy stuff I dont need, want stuff that I cant afford... There, read it or not my opinion is somewhere other than in my head.
