Head to Head Review: 2023 RockShox Zeb vs Fox 38
The steep initial part of the curve looks a lot like preload to me. Anyone know if this is just a general design element for the RS forks?

Industry Digest: $2 Billion of Bike Imports in 2021, Decathlon Shuts US Stores & More
Customs value is not the same as retail value. The bike companies are having frames and parts manufactured in other countries, to be later sold in the US. So the cost to manufacture a single frame may only be $100, but by the time they sell it to the public, they charge more like $1000, because they have other costs to cover, such as the tools to build the frame, shipping the frame to the US, and then all of the other overhead the company has. (Cost numbers completely made up...)

Mondraker Announces the "Safety Check" Bike For the 2022 UCI DH World Cup & World Championships
@Muckal: By race day, everyone involved knows how that do or die jump is working or not working. That is not what this is for. The clearing rider immediately before the race is ensure that the course is clear and ready to race. And ski racing absolutely has large borderline unsafe jumps, and just like in DH, they sometimes get worked on during the week to make things safer. Practice, inspection, and jury inspections all exist for those reasons.

Mondraker Announces the "Safety Check" Bike For the 2022 UCI DH World Cup & World Championships
Ski racing has used forerunners for this purpose for a very long time. The forerunner does not need to be going 100% of race pace to assess safety, they just need to know what they are looking for.

Final Results from EWS-E Tweed Valley 2021
@R-M-R: I was thinking the same. The power stage does show the difference in the motors, and that's partially the point. It encourages the manufacturers to make their motors better, and that technology filters its way down to the consumer. Same basic idea as pretty much every professional racing series out there.

@jayjay1989: just showing what $10 actually buys these days. Anyone who has bought raw steel in the last 6 months knows it doesn't buy much. Besides, the customer isn't paying for raw material. They are paying for fabricated metal, and the design, and the labor to build it.
