First Ride: Bold Linkin Trail
They simply forgot to think about the space they need to include the internal routing. I can accept that two mounts wont properly fit in smaller sizes but a large frame should have two mounts.

All this trouble hiding the shock and making the bike look clean. But no internal routing for dropper post cables....

since the visor is not retrofitted by the customer I'm sure they included it in the testing and found it to be safe.

I don't have a report or a reference saying it is actually dangerous / may compromise safety. But I don't have one saying it is safe either. But I have litte piece from GoPro: "We have not done widespread testing of different helmet brands, in most instances a camera will more likely dismount than damage the helmet. Our policy is that it is up to the customer to ensure their camera is mounted safely and securely, we can not accept any liability regarding the way that a mounted camera my impact the user’s safety in the event of a crash." and from Specialized: "We think it’s a bad idea to have a camera “hard mounted or bolted” to the helmet, as this may increase risk by adding leverage to rotation in an impact. Standards often state that “protrusions over 5mm in height, off of the surface of the helmet, must break away in an impact.” And the difference between hard mounted and glued on are slim Basicly it is tinkering with your main safety device. Just like no one would drill holes into his helmet to create a better ventilation.

The camera ban is necessary. Right now its just stuff you glue on your helmet and no one knows the consequences. Helmet manufacturers will consider the mounting points and the effect the camera has in a crash situation. Next gen helmets could be proven to be safe with cameras attached, which is a good thing in my books.

Rose Uncle Jimbo 2 - Review
It's not about whether they should exist or not. It's about the value they add to a bike they sell. Servicing gears at a bikeshopt is not for free even if you bought your bike there. Same thing for spare parts they're more expensive than an onlineshop. So the point of being able to help people with no knowledge /no time / no tools for repairing/servicing doesnt really count in my opinion. I don't want to rant about the prices they have on spare parts or servicing, thats fine with me. But the price added just for selling a bike comes with no gain.

I don't quite get the idea of needing a part "fast". I have the usual spare parts in stock, like brakepads, tyres, tubes, cleats and shifter cable. Other parts I can get delivered within two days. Unless I ruin a non spare part just the day before going to an event or breaking my bike like right infront of the shop I dont see any value in them at all.

Well, a regular salesmodel adds two parties (importer, bikeshop) that basicly just raise the price without any gain.

Actually FuzzyL is right, AL-Alloy Fatbike(single frame, anodized) frame can be bought from an intermediary for 50€. And now look at the prices the customer pays...
