You want value look at Vitus. Why are Specialized as one of the largest bike manufacturers not able to produce good value bikes.

Photo Epic: 25 Iconic Retro Bikes at The Malverns Classic Retro Show and Shine
Modern bike designers should take note. I think current designers are all suffering from depression, most modern bikes come in dull grey. Where is the fun.

Revenue Round Up: Strong Sales Amid Supply Chain Issues
I don't think the bike industry values its customers, never have they made more money and yet customer service is appalling, people wait weeks for even a response by most companies. Not only are bikes and components at an all time high in cost, not content with that, the quality is lower, thinner materials, cheaper materials, all in an effort to squeeze profit, when they are already making huge profits. Example, my bike came with a branded headset, off the shelf it would come with a stainless bearing, but the bike maker specs a lower grade bearing, to what make an extra couple of dollars. You see that all over on bikes. That's what happens when bike companies get taken over by bean counters, it happened the same way in the car industry.

Revenue Round Up: Strong Sales Amid Supply Chain Issues
Lets not forget that the products that are getting through to consumers, seem to have a much higher rate of product failure or defects in the last few years. Seems that in an effort to meet demand lots of corners have been cut on quality control. Not just in cycling but almost everything coming out of China over the last few years, have much higher defect rates. A mix of rushing, poor materials, lack of staff etc. I hope Covid has taught companies and countries the benefits of local production, where standards can be adhered to. A quick profit now may come at the cost of long term brand reputation. It only takes one bad experience in a poor product or poor customer service and unlikely to ever get that consumer back.

British Councillor Objects to Local Bike Park Due to Fears of Child Molesters & 'Aggressive Males'
Lol, so no one wants to be politically incorrect and state the biggest concern .... The Gypsy camp next door. Hold onto your valuables, check the trails before each ride, never cycle alone, lock the car, and have eyes in the back of your head. For those not in the UK or Ireland, Google gypsy or pikie .

Only 8% of Downhill World Cup Riders Want Skinsuits to Return - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
How about pro line DH dungarees for ultimate coverage or kilts for unrestricted movement, patent pending.

Slack Randoms: Another Cyclist Falls Through the Ice, A New Suspension Stem & More
Having been to Australia many times to see family, I still don't really understand the countries Zeitgeist. It was a pioneer country and still plays on the myths of hard yakka, common sense and freedom. Yet of all the western countries I have been to it seems the most rules are rules, pc, nanny state I have been to, in complete contrast to its origins, maybe a knee jerk reaction to its past. The police certainly lack any sense of humor. I still cannot figure out what the real place is.
