Revenue Round Up: 'We Really, Really Like What We Are Seeing'
@trillot: Many of the expenses hidden within the quoted profits were likely negotiated long before Covid dropped. Now they'll be placing orders (spending from this revenue) at increased prices, possibly also for greater quantities if they are confident enough the boom will continue, and will have to expand capacity to produce. That all takes more money. There's always a lag. I'm not saying this explains away all of it, but I'm sure that when they started negotiating prices for their next orders they realized they'd need to raise the prices to maintain acceptable margins. I don't expect the numbers next year to be quite as drastic. Also, given the high demand, they probably sold most of their stock at full price rather than having to clearance stuff out at the end of the season. I can't say how much this applies to the producer vs. distributor/retailer, but could also be a factor in some of these numbers.

Review: Enve AM30 Carbon Wheels
@gnarlysipes: Ok...I looked it up just now. According to ZipRecruiter the average annual income for a "medical doctor" in the United States is $224,190 (2018). They could put $100k a year toward medical school debt (thus paying it off in 4-7 years based on the estimates in this thread) and still have more than double the country's median income ($43,206 in 2019). Granted, as I understand it they typically have to purchase their own malpractice insurance which I'm certain does not come cheap, but it's pretty hard to argue that doctors, lawyers, and dentists don't have considerably more discretionary income than the average individual.

Ask Pinkbike: Tire Sealant, Trunnion Shocks, Spoke Lengths, Fork Steerers & Insect Repellent
@dsmdan18: I've never had success with that stuff. I once worked with a guy who (apparently doesn't read directions) sprayed the stuff right on like DEET, arms and all. Wonder how he's doing... The REPEL stuff does work pretty well but not for six hours. For two or three it's nearly as good as DEET. But the pump is the most garbage dispensing mechanism I've ever met. Every bottle I've used, and everyone I've ever seen use the stuff, takes the cap off and applies it like cologne. Going to have to check out this Picaridin stuff. Never heard of it.

funny...I've never felt like permethrin does anything. I started with the spray can, followed instructions...nothing. Multiple times. Nothing. Bought a shirt that supposedly has it applied at the factory (InsectShield, I believe). Never once felt like there were fewer blood suckers swarming me. For biking I just ride faster and don't stop for breaks...mosquitoes are the best training partners.

Tool Box Check: Grant Sides - Trek Factory Racing
@ktm87: aren't Snap-On all rebranded SK and/or CDI? I thought most professional mechanics were over Snap-On at this point...I think pretty much all their tools are rebranded and marked up from other quality manufacturers.
