Ask Pinkbike: Fork Progression, Climbing Tips, and Broken Spokes
@Broth-Ratchurch: you are spot on, especially as this customer sounds like they are in a hurry. That said, they should still sell him the damn spoke for $1-2 and tell him in no uncertain terms that they have no responsibility whatsoever besides giving him the right length if things go south.

Ask Pinkbike: Fork Progression, Climbing Tips, and Broken Spokes
Hey WAKI, thanks for providing a sweet example of what's wrong with the "mountainbikeBRO "culture."" Now go hit a 3000ft climb starting at 5000ft and get back to me. Sure, you and I might do it on a singlespeed but let me tell you when I have the option, I'll enjoy that 30/42 lots. If you can't be encouraging or helpful, let people ride and STFU instead of talking smack. FWIW You'd probably bitch if they got an ebike, too.

Another tip for the climb guy since he doesn't dread the short punchy climbs as much: Do informal high intensity intervals on the little hills that don't scare you. That is, on shorter rides with punchy climbs, give it *everything* you've got; then pedal suuuper easy when it flattens out, and repeat on the next hill. That ought to tune your engine and make the rides with longer climbs significantly less awful.

Guerrilla Gravity Debuts "Smash" 29er
@mikealive: @powderturns: What Mike Said. Margins for shop on hi-end bikes are 32-38%, no more...maaaybe into the low 40's for sub 1k bikes from some big brands. 50% is low end accessories. I believe is supporting the LBS- but have no problem with educated buyers buying direct; or customers who buy direct and don't act entitled when they go to shops, and tip some beers if the service is good. I also believe in what GG is doing here, gives the bike shops an easy answer to "can I get MUSA??"

Hmmm...Trig and geo are so damn closely related what does that even mean. I suppose that's like saying now it's all about head angles but it's about to be all about fork offset----very slightly different way of approaching the same thing.
