Round Up: 19 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
One bedroom apartments are about $2k in the PNW. Some places more. Gotta make about $50 an hour to make it out here.

@Ghaytnd: That’s certainly no where near what retail bike shops make on anything of than tubes. Average GPM is around 30-35% overall on average. Normal successful businesses shoot for 45-55% GPM to end up with 3% profits yearly. Frame manufacturers such as Yeti are making about 40-50% GPM overall once all components are sourced. A direct to consumer brand makes much more.

@snook: You are referring to a hypothesis rather than theory. Hypothesis is an educated guess based on scientific understanding, theory is a proven scientific fact in which results can be recreated.

Right, I would need at minimum $50 an hour to afford a rental apartment in Colorado. Bike businesses just take advantage of employees for some “benefits” that don’t mean a thing in the real world.

8 Race Bikes from the 2022 Pump Track World Championships
I’m not convinced at all that a BMX bike is faster than a DJ. Raced BMX as a kid, and I was always faster on a MTB. Smaller wheels aren’t inherently faster than larger wheels. Due to physics, a smaller wheel can accelerate a tad bit quicker, however a smaller wheel takes more revolutions to go the same distance. A 26” wheel will also maintain speed better and potentially gain more speed over the same amount of track length with everything else equal. Hence why 29ers can be faster on smooth and rough terrain than smaller wheeled counterparts.

Field Test: Ibis Exie - Ready for Your Next XC Race
@KJP1230: Comparing a modular design with an extremely basic suspension design, to a hand laid design using the molds for only ONE frame, with a DW link, is disingenuous at best.

@vitaflo: Exactly. XC doesn’t mean downcountry. A burley short travel trail bike is downcountry.

@SATN-XC: 4 of the 6 have the same or more travel as a Ripley. In fact, the Evil and BMC are clearly more DH sided than the rest including a Ripley.

Ibis Exie is their XC bike, the Ripley is downcountry. The geo of the Exie is way more steep than the rest. Put down the crack, pickup a Ripley with a 140mm fork and start over.

Poll: Who is the Greatest Downhill Racer of All Time?
How many different young top racers has Minnaar competed with at the top level for his entire career?! His mental fortitude and dedication top the list for me. Sam Hill, what a legend. Tough to put him anywhere but 1st. Not only has he been fast on any bike, in any conditions on flat pedals for ages. He brings together what downhill mountain biking means AND racing. The women collectively share the same love and grit that it takes to be at the top for ages. This is what really sets a legendary professional and a professional racer apart. Coming back from numerous injuries back to the top spot. Competing against others on the track, while daily competing with themselves to get better. Much respect to them all!
