Ask Pinkbike: Fork Progression, Climbing Tips, and Broken Spokes
@IronBender: Who is charging 200% markup? Shimano makes us adhere to a 40% markup and Chain Reaction sells it for 5% over cost. When your overhead is 25-30% on a good day, you don't have to do the math on how hard it is to pay your rent and pay your employees a living wage with health insurance.

Ask Pinkbike: Fork Progression, Climbing Tips, and Broken Spokes
A shop that gives away free labor will be gone even sooner. The rotor and cassette will have to be romoved. Not to mention trying the wheel and retensioning the spokes. If the the nipple has to be removed from the rim, that involves removing rim tape and tire and then resealing it and adding more sealant. This whole job while not that hard or time consuming isn't as simple as just adding a new spoke. We would also do it on the spot. It would take one of my technicians around 20 minutes to complete while the customer waited. It would cost $38.00 parts and labor.

@Broth-Ratchurch: exactly, I see nothing wrong with paying mechanics a living wage for their time and expertise.

They are quite pricey the ones made by TSN. Mine was just over $400 USD

Kirt Voreis Toying with Galbraith - Video
It was great working with Kirt when I worked at Specialized. He is one of the funniest guys in mountain biking and he has a positive energy about him in everything he does.

Juliana Strega – First Ride
I like this green better than the two Nomad colors. When my grandparents would argue in Italian, he would call me grandmother a Strega quite often.

Kirt Voreis High Speed Drifter - Video
I just rode the same bike today. It was super fun on 29 inch wheels. The music in the latest Kirt videos has been awesome.
