How Much Do Professional Mountain Bikers Get Paid? - Pinkbike's State of the Sport Survey
Mountain biking is a niche industry. These atheletes are a big deal to us but honestly if you compare it to mainstream pro sports, it makes sense. Lebron james is selling whatever sneakers he wears to millions of people who watch him play, whether those people play basketball or not. Loic Bruni is selling a bike to people who 1)already ride mountainbikes 2)are actually into racing 3)are going to buy a mountainbike this year. Its all economies of scale. $6000 is a lot of money for a bike, and they are going to sell quite a few. Lebron's signature shoes have generated $340 MILLION dollars for nike. How bikes do you think Bruni has sold? How many dollars has he generated for specialized?

Field Test: 2023 Norco Fluid - The Reasonably Priced One
Im ok with autoplay. If they get higher view counts they get more money from their parent company. As someone who doesn't pay for the content I don't really think I have a right to b*tch and moan about a very well produced video playing that is exactly related to the content that I clicked on. What the hell is everyone's problem with this? Seriously. How bad is it to pause a video?

Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
@iammarkstewart: I am 100% in agreement with you on external routing. I wish everything was built with ease of service in mind. However, this really isn't that difficult of a procedure for someone who is used to working on internally routed stuff. Bike shops stand to make a lot of money servicing these bicycles, because it seems intimidating to the average rider (who, like you said, will most likely not be working on their own stuff, whether internal or external lol). After you deal with it a time or two as an owner of one of these bikes you wont have too much difficuly either. If you have mineral oil brakes, take 3 minutes to funnel bleed after you reconnect the hose. If you have DOT brakes they're gonna need a bleed sooner or later anyway, probably more often than you need to mess with the upper headset bearing. In conclusion, tri bikes (and most tri-athletes I've had the pleasure of dealing with) can f*ck right off

Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
Bike mechanics have worked aero road and tri bikes for years that have cable routing thru handlebars, stems, downtubes, you name it. Anyone who has worked on trek speedconcept with the tiny steer tube knows what I'm on about. This level of integration on mtb's is stupid, absolutely, but experienced mechanics don't have to relearn anything.
