2014 Yeti SB66c (carbon) Size Medium; for sale: This has been an awesome bike for me! It really upped my game in riding confidence and ability. It rides smooth, steady and silent. The 66 degree head tube angle provides so much confidence in steep descents and rolling over obstacles. The suspension is supple and very adjustable to personal taste and riding style. At this price, this is a great step up to higher end full suspension riding. Especially if you're coming from a hard tail. *Pedals not included* Fox Factory 34 CTD FIT forks Kashima - seals & fluid service done April 6.

Performance to Close All Remaining Stores, Over 95 ASE Employees Laid Off
@jgreermalkin: Wow, that's a very large generalization there. I've been to local bike shops that had great mechanics, and I've been to shops that had idiots for mechanics. I've been to REI's that had bad bike mechanics and REI's that won my business for many years because their shop lead mechanic was so awesome. I agree with you, Performance is a franchise, not a local bike shop. I shopped at Performance mostly for more down to earth prices on accessory type stuff like clothes, brake pads, tires, tools. A step up from Target or Walmart? You've never really been in a Performance store I'm guessing. They carried different brands like GT. They weren't partially owned by Specialized like Bike Source and I never experienced the arrogance that I've repeatedly experienced at Bike Source and some other "cool" shops. Paying ridiculously high prices just to be with in the "in" crowd has always baffled me. But you go ahead on brother. I got some great deals at Performance. Their demise will increase prices in the areas they had stores. Guaranteed. A $100 for a $10 shirt that has a trendy name on it isn't any better than a shirt made of the same material without that trendy name on it. I'm sorry to see Performance go. There's a big void in the market now where the 200% and more markup on bike stuff isn't going to fill.

Here's a New Standard We Should Get Behind - Taipei Cycle Show 2018
All the good lines were taken so I'm going to pass on my lame attempt at humor. I like the idea on this product and would buy one. However, I wouldn't go buy new forks just for matching lines. The funny thing is that I keep struggling to get my alignment just right and was afraid to ask anyone and look stupid. Then last weekend at a local trail network, 3 guys near me were talking about struggling to get their handlebars aligned. I guess I'm not the only stupid rider out there after all. I recently saw a tip on YouTube that said to lay a ruler on the front tire butted against the stanchion tubes to help with this alignment. I told those guys about it, but I haven't actually tried it myself yet.

Opinion: Why Have Bike Makers Ignored this Grassroots Fix?
I was glad the author mentions "marketing types". The MTB business has become what I hate most about the ski business, marketing types and used car salesman. The fact that they said "it would just add to the MSRP" is telling. Consider that that at list price the markup from the Mfr cost is 50%-80% and the average full suspension MTB now must be around $4000 new, I'd think adding this wrap would be a value-add over competition rather than a increase in MSRP. And they know there are a certain amount of people out there that can afford to, and will replace something just because it doesn't look new anymore.
