Field Test: 2020 Canyon Lux - A Very Fast Baseline
The rd is amortized over the expected run of the design. The price should be expected to drop over the run based on demand for older designs lessening as they become outdated. I think consumer direct messes with that a bit as it is advantageous to show high value upfront, and the consumer direct customer is self selecting looking for a lower price. I think it would be interesting to compare a canyon customer to a bikes direct customer.

Field Trip: Is Buying a Used Mountain Bike Worth It?
@jl1984: Your right, they aren't cars, they are much more like race cars. They push the limit of performance and weight. A shop can't "tune" a bike and have it skip cogs, have a squishy poorly performing suspension and sub optimal braking when it leaves the shop. As a rule customers expect a "tuned" bike to ride like it was new.

The MTB Aesthetic - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich
@BikesBoatsNJeeps: I think those are armstrong/lever shocks. The rotary vane damper is a bit different. It offers interesting packaging options. https://scarbsf1.wordpress.com/2011/11/25/analysis-rotary-dampers/

The MTB Aesthetic - Sunday Comics with Taj Mihelich
Waaaay to mainstream. Semi-seriously, I have always thought that there might be some place for rotary dampers in MTB design. F1 championships have been won with them, and their inherent limitation would be less of a problem in an MTB. SO rotary damper/gearbox sharing the same casting! Plus 150mm Lefty, and mic drop.

Pinkbike Poll: Who's Breaking Bikes These Days?
@Klainmeister: It is the slightly twisted cages that are the worst. Hanger straight, cage looks ok but you can only use 9 of 12 cogs. You get to choose if it skips cogs up high or down low though.

6 Clip-In Trail Pedals Ridden & Rated
@seraph: We were of the same mind for a while, but we found when someone came in looking for some variation on the word "clip" and then were corrected and given a history lesson we came off as standoffish and less than welcoming of new people to the sport. We feel we didn't need to be more of an old boys club than necessary. MInd you this isn't limited to those looking to shred, it was common for many riders, including casual hybrid grandma, newbie road commuter, old guy who thinks its a great idea to get in shape by riding his rigid gary fisher... It is just better to roll with it and explain the virtues of the different systems. We train our guys to refer to the specific technology SPD, Crank Brothers, ect. in those conversations. That way we are always setting an example using correct terminology, but not creating a barrier to communication.
