Good Month / Bad Month: Fairness, Ohlins, Fuji, Sending It, & More - November 2018
@BenPea: While they may not be taking HgH or testosterone (where results are pretty much black and white), its likely that most of these athletes try to walk that fine line with alot of these substances that are in the "grey area", where you can blame it on accidental ingestion, asthma medication, etc. Looking at what happened with Froome (nothing), a lot of these guys may be temped to roll the dice.

Field Test: Cannondale Habit Carbon
@dcaf: Or they could have spec'd it with a better and cheaper XT drive train and sold it for $4k.

@gtrguy: Yea, it really is complicated. The imbalance also comes from US companies paying way more in tariffs (from both cost and volume) than Chinese companies. What Trump is trying to do, in a very heavy-handed way, is to move more manufacturing back into the US by making it more cost-attractive. Raising tariffs is a very one-dimensional way of doing this, and you'd really need to strap yourself in for a long, wild, ride for it to be effective, which I don't think is sustainable. Just look at the impact on the stock market alone. Other reality is that after all the effort and money that was spent in moving capability to Asia, its unrealistic in the short-term to expect companies to turn around right away and spend the same amount of time and money to move it back, just to pay higher cost and overhead here.

@gtrguy: Ripped off? No. Imbalance, yes. Also off-shoring most of your industrial capability into one location may be good from a cost-perspective in the short-term, but is the equivalent of single-sourcing in a supply chain scenario, and is a recipe for disaster in the long-term.

@gtrguy: Studying in school and working hard, vs. being a slacker and bitching on the internet that the government isn't taking good enough care of you, and blaming your problems on everyone else but yourself.

@thesharkman: Aside from that poor guy in the Alps, how many mountain bikers have been shot by hunters? Your more likely to be mistaken for an animal just walking in the woods than riding.

@wibblywobbly: Most of the $$$$ bikes and trucks you see riding through Stowe are from tourists coming from Canada or South. Not that this is a bad thing, since it helps keep the local businesses alive. Hating on people making $$$$ is a common theme on this site, but having a bunch of rich people living in your town helps to keep your local economy thriving. Ask any business owner in Stowe. Also, many of the locals have industry hookups, or just scrape and save to buy a nice bike. Worth it to have a nice bike even if its a stretch, since you're on it basically every day during Spring/Summer/Fall.

@scott-townes: @scott-townes: Because everyone at the top of every professional sport (and most Olympic sports) most likely is. Like Enduro is the only cardio/strength sport where all the top guys and gals are clean, LOL! Pretty naive to think otherwise. Go watch Icarus.
