The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 12 - What's the Future of Bike Shops?
i have zero reason to go to the shop other than service they dont carry any higher end parts unless its XC or road groups and forget about anything that isnt shimano, sram or fox as for bikes same story, unless its light xc or road you cant get anything, especially less known brands LBS has some specialized bikes but only if you order them, other than that they have 2016 carbon demo on display which i guess they cant sell because its pretty much flat for like 400km around lol

Video: What's the Deal with Cross-Country Racing? - The Explainer
@kingbike2: >sports are added and deleted based on their popularity... if that was true we would have actually interesting Olympics with sports that are attractive to modern audience or maybe it is true but IOC is run by bunch of boomers that lag behind the world by 20 years

Deity Announces Deftrap Nylon Pedal
@seismicninja: >He just makes a very solid argument about why they shouldn't be bought with that i can agree, you should support your local business and companies sponsoring raiders etc >or made but he is wrong about this, fooker isnt doing anything illegal or immoral, i already said it above, both companies are doing the same thing if you think its wrong to make such product than you also should think race face is doing a wrong thing. the only difference here is that fooker is some random chinese brand and race face is based in US (they are canadian iirc? but owned by Fox)

Deity Announces Deftrap Nylon Pedal
@Supergirl56: >But who did all the R&D for the original design. I kinda doubt it was fooker and you'll be right, it wasn't fooker but it wasn't race face either, it was a Taiwanese or Chinese company from which BOTH race face and fooker are buying it both companies are just re-branding already designed product, which im pretty sure was made by wellgo, they are based in Taiwan and chester is manufactured in Taiwan as well

@Supergirl56: yeah i did, yeah if you want to support raiders sponsored by race face go ahead and buy their product, but fooker isnt doing anything wrong here, they LITERALLY did the same thing as race face, bough a pedal design and put their logos on it how doing the exact same thing is ok for race face but wrong for fooker? now, would i buy race face instead of fooker? yeah of course i want to support raiders, i can easily afford it and i want a better quality product, but again, there is nothing wrong with buying a fooker

@Supergirl56: depends how you define knock-off, are they very similar? yes, pedal shape is the same but axle is of lower quality is fooker ripping off or copying from race face? no

@BCtrailrider: im not defending them in particular, just truth and common sense >a better company that put time into designing the product but race face didn't design that product, they bought it from open catalogue and paid to put their branding on top of someone else product, so exactly the same thing as fooker, race face just paid more for a better quality product but its not their own design (unless the axle is, but that part is not being copied) of course their logos are their design as well but thats obvious i enjoy Seths content but this video is very reactionary and uninformed given sufficient founds and contacts in Taiwan/China (chesters are manufactured in Taiwan, most likely by wellgo) you can do the same thing, order exact same pedals from open catalogue and put your logos there, you are not stealing or ripping off anyone, you are legally buying rights to sell it under your own name a lot of things work like that in bike industry, even Pinkbike made video about this while they were trying to design the Donut
