Randoms Round 1 - Interbike 2018
I once did a DIY light kit 10+ years ago when 80-100 lumens was considered the max at the time and LEDs were still relatively uncommon. It was a pretty basic circuit with a buckpuck, battery, switch, and LED. The LEDs were super cheap to buy vs complete lights at the time and the hardest part was cooling, mounted the LEDs on some old cpu heatsinks with thermal paste and glue. Aside from that point, from a business standpoint if you need to markup your products cost 15x to bring it to market while covering your R&D costs when very good competing products are already available for say a 2-4x markup, it would be pretty stupid to bring that product to market at that price and you shouldn't have wasted your time and money on R&D in the first place.

@badbadleroybrown: yeah the price on that is insane, a nitecore concept 2 is 6500 lumens for less than 1/6th the price. The no name brands from China are even cheaper. My nitecore hc30 and now hc33 have been way better than my old bulky heavy weak serfas lights.

The bright settings are awesome for making out what animal is on or near the trail when you see glowing sets of eyes 300ft away.

Stompump's Foot-Operated Mini-Pump - Interbike 2018
Looks cool and probably very well designed, but it's still heavy, gets rid of your water bottle cage, and is expensive.... Why would anyone pick this over carrying a couple co2 cartridges and a small hand pump as a backup? Could have been more functional too if the cage also had some storage built-in to carry a tube or tire plugs, but some overpriced rebranded bike specific ski straps work fine for that too.
