How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
@cvoc: Sure, but Robot's comment still keeps things in perspective. At the end of the day, talk to your co-workers about how much money you make and check out your union options. If someone gets pissy about talking about how much they make, either they have something to gain or they know they don't deserve to make more money than you do.

Field Trip: Stoic vs Sentier vs Two Stroke vs Fluid vs Growler - Value Hardtail Roundtable
And I'd also say that this being the LEAST EXPENSIVE HARDTAIL in Pinkbike's VALUE test it seems that this is the exact example of what a first mountain bike would be for someone. Hence get a good bare minimum that really doesn't hold you back and then you can upgrade it a little bit. Something that I think Canyon hit a bullseye with.

Field Trip: Stoic vs Sentier vs Two Stroke vs Fluid vs Growler - Value Hardtail Roundtable
@woofer2609: I understand what you mean, but I argue that the question is not about range but rather having a low gear for the beginner rider. Also, if this is a first mountain bike, you're probably not going on those technical descents right away, eliminating the immediate want for a dropper. However, after you spend half a season getting comfortable on a mountain bike IF you like it and IF you have the time to continue, maybe you want to spring for that dropper post!

Field Trip: Stoic vs Sentier vs Two Stroke vs Fluid vs Growler - Value Hardtail Roundtable
The Canyon is by FAR the least expensive and while a dropper post may be a better riding experience, for a beginner this isn't really a thought yet. As for range, I'd just like to point out that people are drooling over that rigid purple "enduro" a bit down the news feed. It wasn't long ago that 11-36 was all that anyone needed even with a 10 speed configuration. Again, for a beginner mountain bike you probably wouldn't consider range. MAYBE put a smaller chainring on it.

First Ride: 2022 Niner WFO 9 RDO - Lots of Travel, Efficiency, & Acronyms
Eh. Look at frame-only prices and then add up the cost of the components. Not saying that this is the way it should be but I am saying that if you compare it to a Rocky Mountain you're coming out ahead with this full carbon frame $4800 build.

Field Trip: Canyon's $1,200 Stoic Is All You Need to Have Fun
Yeah, and for a "beginner" bike the complaint shouldn't be about range but rather that the front chainring is too big if Levy is having trouble.

First Look: The Compotech Cduro Integrates Its Carbon Tubes and Joints - Pond Beaver 2021
@n00bmtbr: As a long-term solution that benefits humanity it seems like the filament winding technique is far and above hand-lay/bladder tech/and general fabric-based approaches. -Less waste: Benefits of pre-preg straight from the roll with no cutting and throwing away useless pieces -Fewer error points: Once you have the program for your robot set there's way less manufacturing variability -Humanitarian: Over the long-term you don't have humans doing rote, repetitive jobs that suck more -Molds are hard to make (whereas you could do this process easily without CNC) -Potentially cheaper from a materials standpoint -Repeatable, plug-and-play nature is (more) marketable and implementable for others On the other side, -Robots are expensive, and tooling is still required -Thus initial payback period is likely longer -Potentially LESS FLEXIBLE with design (big one) -Worse if you hate the environment and love providing meaningless jobs
