Yeti Cycles Will No Longer Use the Term 'Tribe' in Marketing
@bman33: Honestly before this pb article made me aware I‘d never thought about tribe having a negative connotation. Out of interest I googled and wanted to share the result as I was surprised myself that there is more to know about the word than what I thought.

Pinkbike Poll: Where Do You Shop for Bike Parts?
@kmg0: From a customer perspective definitely yes. Let’s hear what you think about - 30 to 40€ for a final service which consists of turning the handlebar and tightening two screws. Same shop sees service as an unnecessary hassle. Customers are called a*holes behind their backs when they come with warranty issues because they keep employees from making money (incentives) - 30€ for a tire change (tire goes extra, premium product bought in the shop - inner tube reused) - unasked change of perfectly working, near new shifting cables (pay for cables + work) - nearly 900€ for a service on a not even one year old 8k€ premium bike. (shop charged more for servicing than it would have cost buying new parts) - ... I could carry on for hours Btw. all examples from different shops. But my favorite story, which illustrates the service quality around here perfectly is someone buying a shiny expensive carbon bike but is not allowed to take it home immediately even though he wrenches a lot and tells the shop that he plans to change most parts. The shop has to make 100% sure everything is working - due to „quality standards and a service protocol“. Customer returns three days later, gets his bike, wants to ride off and nearly eats shit in front the shop. Someone forgot to put „tighten stem“ in the protocol ...

@mikekazimer: „... it's better to have a customer be surprised that a repair cost less than expected ...“ Really, did that ever happen to you or someone you know?

Most of the shops I know are doing pretty well - thanks to average commuter bikes, ebikes and clients who have no clue that they are being ripped off.

I live in a town with 1.5m people and still there's no bikeshop I'd truly recommend around here.

@vinay: ”...Tolerant enough to make jokes about hair color, skin color, sex, sexuality, music taste, anything. Being different shouldn't be a taboo.“ Well said! That's what I miss sometimes these days - tolerance.

Interview: Trek's Travis Brown On Experimenting With 32" & 36" Wheels
@fiatpolski: As far as I know Liteville did this because they were surprised by the succes of big wheels and didn't have a 29er frame ready. So they rushed to market with their mullet idea – substantiated with a marketing spiel ... the bikes may have changed now but a that time they simply tried to sell Frankenbikes.
