We're At The 2017 Taipei Cycle Show
@kanasasa: The engineer is not the factor, many projects are proudly "engineered and designed in the usa" still, it is the skilled/unskilled labor that makes all the difference which make up a much larger portion of the products cost. Add to this less regulation, nearly non existent environmental and health protection, and no on can compete with their manufacturing costs. That is why everything is made in China. Things have gotten better in China over the last decade (for the environment and people, i.e. more expensive for us), but there is still a long way to go.

Microshift's $600 Electric Drivetrain Is Nearly a Real Thing - Taipei Cycle Show
@polarproton: The battery in the derailleur is where nearly all of the power is used, the piece in the shifter could be very small and replaceable every year or less.

Fox Proframe Full-Face Helmet
If price is too much then wait one season, $125 next year. That is amazingly light, for comparison: Giro Remedy CF Large is 1180g Urge Down o Matic 1040g Spec Deviant XL 1140g These are all older helmets though, it would be nice to see what modern helmets are weighing in at.

Huck Norris Tire Insert - Review
It's a great idea, it COULD work, too bad the review didn't do anything measurable. How hard is it, put a sharp edged rock on the ground, roll over it at X mph to cause a flat. Put the tire insert on, roll over the rock again, does it cause a flat??? Do this 5 times with and without the insert (maybe it was luck). Test a pool noodle, I would guess it does the same thing for $1, plus comes in cool colors. Test different PSI.

Cane Creek's New DB AIR [IL] Shock + OPT and DROPT Remotes - Press Release
@Loche: That is true if the forces holding the rubber to the shaft were the same, but they are not because the seal is bigger next to the cylinder wall as well, so more squeeze force pushing on more seal area, equates to higher friction (same force on more area), I think? Regardless I'd say it's probably negligible.

After the Fall - Riding the Injury Cycle with Steffi Marth
I cannot recommend enough to become a specialist yourself of your own injury; no one else will care as much as you do - Steffi Marth WORDS TO LIVE BY - I've found that doctors sometimes disagree on what is best. NEVER see just one for a serious injury. Get three opinions before committing to a plan. I've even found after becoming nearly an expert on my personal injuries that some doctors were giving bad advice. Good luck Steffi
