Randoms: One More Lap Around North America's Best Bike Expo - Sea Otter 2017
@PeterT: Depends; most of their stuff looks like something designed during an LSD trip, but they do have a few nice pieces. I own one TLD jersey and I would be able to choose more if I needed to.

Randoms: One More Lap Around North America's Best Bike Expo - Sea Otter 2017
@aoneal: That's like wearing all black clothes. There's nothing wrong about it but it doesn't require any skill or creativity, it's too simple. Do you people still remember Tippie's custom painted Rocky Mountain? https://www.pinkbike.com/news/Tippies-Custom-Painthouse-2014-Rocky-Mountain-Flatline.html One of the best (custom or not) paint jobs I've ever seen.

Shiny Custom Painted Bikes – Sea Otter 2017
@chezotron: Limited releases are just a poor man's wannabe alternative to bespoke products. If you want to ride with a proper style, contact Hermes: http://usa.hermes.com/bespoke/us Alligator knee and elbow pads? Peccary gloves? Nappa lambskin jersey and shorts? Stingray shoes? Ostrich hydrapak? You name it, they make it for you... as long as you can afford it. (Then you crash into some thorny bushes and it's going to cost you more than if you wrecked a Mercedes :D )

Shiny Custom Painted Bikes – Sea Otter 2017
Tbh if I had a Santa Cruz or Intense, I'd go for some unique paint too. The last thing you want is to spend $10k for a bike, park it in front of your dental clinic and find out that there are already three more that look the same.

Do Wheels Need to Cost So Much? – Interview – Sea Otter 2017
Just look at the prices of road wheels; you'd pay that amount of money for a carbon road wheelset long before carbon wheels for MTB were even available. I remember ordering a new set of Mavic Crossmax SX for 700 EUR back in 2013, looking at their Ksyrium and Cosmic models and telling myself "poor roadies, what an outrageous price to pay".

Marin Wolf Ridge: First Ride
@jaycubzz: From the four brands you mentioned, I'd call Porsche the only one that makes good looking cars. I'm not saying the others are ugly, but you can clearly see it's "function first, design second".

Marin Wolf Ridge: First Ride
Kill me too but I like it, especially the paint job looks great. If it didn't have wagon wheels... I still wouldn't be able to afford it :D But I like it.

No Exif 4: Leica M6 Stills from the Builder Movie Shoot - Video
You should stop for the photographer's sake, if he was hoping to get some compliments of his work, reading these comments instead must feel like a punishment...

Devinci's 30th Anniversary YYZ Bike
I like it too. And I immediately realized, why. The trend of the past few years has been: 1. Take a component 2. Make it bigger 3. ??? 4. Profit! So if you take a retro steel frame and combine it with modern components, you'll end up with a bike whose frame tubes are thinner than the fork, handlebar or seat post so it looks ugly. But Devinci's bottom tube is quite thick so it looks nicely balanced.

Inside Unior Tools
Because either you want your tools to last and you buy the best thing available or you don't care and try to spend as little as possible.
