Day 3 of Crankworx - A rainy off day
Thanks anyways, I guess we both learned something. It would nice if GoPro would get off their ass and issue the firmware that adds the features that the GoPro HD was advertised to have upon release. Bit of a piss of really.

Day 3 of Crankworx - A rainy off day
@ westcoastdownhiller, I have the GoPro HD and they have not yet released the firmware upgrade for the "up/upd" feature. When they do, this will be a non-issue. Thanks cydaps for the advice.

I here ya. Helmet cams are always great to relive that air, that bail, that corner... On a side note, Jordan, is shooting in the 4:3 960P mode your preference when using the chesty? Have you modified the mount at all to the camera point more upward?

Race Face in MEC details - Actual SKUs!
bmannn, I don't suppose you read both my comments above. I support my LBS, they do great things and I will continue buy bikes there and get service done. I also highly doubt that they will be going out of business anytime soon. If they do evenually, it won't be bacuause MEC sell low end RF gear. I also never said that the shops sets the prices. The manufacturer and distributor does. Speaking of prices, to the best of my knowledge the "level tax" that the LBS will be getting from RF hasn't even been made public yet. So how can anyone say what the difference in margins will be? I also like how you say "most of us not getting rich doing this", then who is? The manufacturer or distributor? You also can't say that the distributor is not in it for the money. Something to think about is that Barrett Corporation is the majority shareholder in Lambert Cycles. The former majority shareholder, now minority shareholder, is Roynat Capital who is a member of ScotiaBank Group. That's right a bank, and another corporation control Lambert Cycles. Hmmm... Sounds likes there must be money to be made. I think that there is definitely some substantial profit involved in purchasing a large quantity directly from the manufacturer at a low cost, and then reselling to all the IBS at a markup. Me not working in any form of the bike industry does not make any of my points invalid. If anything it makes them unbiased. Like cree said below, what about "SRAM, Shimano, Wellgo, Garmin, Jagwire, Kenda, Maxxis, Schwalbe..." being sold at MEC. Sounds like "legitimate" manufacturers are going out of style hey? Until the LBS, manufacturers and distributors can get Canadian customers good prices on parts/gear from our LBS, the majority of the population will look elsewhere for deals. Ideally, we would all go to out LBS becuase we prefer them, get those great prices that we see online and in the US, but we don't.
