Derailleur vs Gearbox: Nicolai Ion 16 vs Ion GPI - Review
Is it just me or did you not address the biggest current issue with gearboxes? That, of course, would be the almost certain need for a proprietary bike/frame. The only alternative is to go with a "hub" style gearbox, which eliminates many of it's benefits.

GoPro Best of the World Contest - September Highlights
@srjacobs: Yeah, it's like, anyone can do that bud. Hell, I'm doing it right now. Jumping 50 or 70 feet is not an accomplishment.

GoPro Best of the World Contest - September Highlights
Anyone know where the guy on the blue Kona (??) is riding? Looks like PNW, but I'm curious about the specific area/system. Thanks! Awesome vid! Edit: Probably not a Kona, but at 1:14... that's the spot I'm talking about.

Knolly Endorphin - Review
@trialsracer: I'm actually pretty libertarian; I love that small government, live and let live, let me decide my destiny stuff. That said, when I think of neo-feudalism I think of parts of Pakistan or Afghanistan. The distinction is probably semantic, but I generally think of feudalism as an ongoing social structure that has some kind of stability (however horrible that stability may be). The situation in Somalia is the direct result in the collapse of a formal government, a civil war, a resultant vacuum in power and the restoration of religious law. As a result of this, the country fractured entering a period where close to a dozen religious, cultural and criminal/military sects emerged and battled over the course of the aughts, and by the early 2010's international intervention began to stabilize the country. My point is that the "feudalistic" characteristics of the country we quite temporary, and the result of a transition and the collapse of a central government. Hence I think "anarchy" or "lawlessness" are quite apt descriptions. Upvoted for the coherent discussion, though.

Knolly Endorphin - Review
Ugh... totally get you guys on the wheel size thing. I recently met a Syrian refugee and a Somali refugee; the first was talking about how his country had been torn apart by a three way war he and his family were caught literally in the middle of. The Somali then told us about how his country was essentially trapped in a state of bloody anarchy, with a dozen warlords capturing various geographic areas and preventing any semblance of order or peace. Then I chimed in, called them both pussies, and told them my tale of woe about how we have multiple wheel sizes to choose from, and some people make a different choice than me. They. Were. Horrified.

And it's a happy coincidence that the Highlands produce some of the finest whisky on the planet.

Whisky is the tie breaker for me.

The Impossible Bike: Carbon Built Here in the USA - Sea Otter 2016
@paulclarke: If you'd simply clicked on either of the links I shared, or even your own, you'd know that the 75% benchmark was proposed, but never accepted. Frankly, it doesn't even support your argument, because it doesn't mention sourcing of parts, which is what you were talking about to begin with. I get the feeling you're pretty sold on whatever it is you want to believe here, and best of luck with that, but again, you're wrong. The FTC's own words make it clear that only negligible content can be foreign sourced. Literally look up three posts and you won't even have to bother clicking on any links, because I quoted the FTC for you.
