YT Launch New Cheaper Capra Core 1 & Upgrades Core 2 Model
A manufacturer posted the weights in a press release?! Doesn't even matter what the weight is, seems none of the other brands will do that. Thanks, YT.

Industry Digest: Specialized Buys $14.9M Office Building, Peloton Hit by $19M Penalty & More
Peloton is not in the bicycle industry. Peloton treadmills are not bike industry news. But bad Peloton news is good schadenfreude for those of us who ride actual bikes.

Video: 5 Trail Bikes Ridden & Rated - Field Test Roundtable
Ferraris do not have "horrific" depreciation. Average is about 15% over 3 years, with numerous models APPRECIATING due to scarcity. Not terribly relevant here, but that's probably not the best example.

Field Test: 2023 Yeti SB140 - The Traction Finder
@Endurahbrah: The reason to read these reviews of $10k bikes is so you know what to look out for on the used market in a few years. There's no way I can afford a $10k bike, but I just bought one - 3 years old, for $3500. Needs a little service work, but nothing I can't do myself.

First Look: 2023 Commencal T.E.M.P.O. - A New Short Travel Trail Bike
I'm very tempted to buy a frame and do my own non-headset cable & hose routing. I like pretty much everything else about this bike.

Field Test: Ibis Exie - Ready for Your Next XC Race
@Chondog94: Oh, please - you really think they need to charge $10k for a middle-spec bike to pay those nice people a living wage?? Only the frame is made in USA. All the other parts are made in Asia. Maybe Ibis frame-makers get paid $200 per hour?

Tech Tuesday: Volume Spacers and Spring Curves
@justinfoil: Adjusting off-the-top, early stroke, and feel by removing all the air, the top cap and then trying more or less tokens are exactly what I meant. Versus adding or removing a little air from top or bottom with dual air.

Tech Week 2023: 6 New Rain Jackets to Keep You Dry
Same applies to ski gear as bike gear - buy last year's model or the year before. Buy lightly used from people who skied 3 days per year. Plus the boom-bust cycles of snow/no snow make even more people just bail and sell their gear. I just bought last year's $1000 skis for $350.

100% this. I really miss my Rockshox Reba dual air forks - I had 3 different versions. I could always dial those things in precisely, way better than I can with spacers in my two current Fox forks.
