Kali Protectives Launches New Maya & Alpine Helmets
I had the nastiest crash I've ever experienced while wearing a Maya. The damage sustained to the helmet was impressive with clear compressions and plastic deformations. My other helmets cracked without any significant deformation on lesser crashes. The Maya did it's job, and while the crash messed me up, I'm positive I'm alive because of it. Purely anecdotal, I know, but the way the helmet deformed was space age. On top of that, Kali replaced it with no charge. Great gear, great CS, and now they have a helmet is green so i have no choice but to buy another ;)

Trickstuff Direttissima Brakes - Review
That logo looks like it belongs to some kind of family fun center. Then again I am very shallow so... The product, however, is gorgeous, and as someone who has done work with engineers in Freiburg, the culture of quality is awesome. i would trust this product just based off of my regional experience.

Dear Bike Industry - Opinion
I feel like the bike industry has paid it's dues and is now becoming a common past time in many regions of the world. The industry is maturing and working out the kinks of its tapering boom market. The only way to maintain market share is through obsolescence. It's the only way it can sustain it's growth. The emergence of direct to consumer sales models is seriously changing the game, so staple brands have to now value proof themselves with bigger and greater innovations. The problem is, there hasn't been any, save for OEM components. These companies have to market the ever-living shit of their subtle design changes, which cost money, which raises prices, which forces more subtle changes to stay competitive. But the market never lies. People are obvious buying this stuff the above model is obviously working. The issue will be some years down the road if the aftermarket isn't big enough to support the fragmented obsolescence model. It's the PC market all over again. 400 brands making computers reduced to less than a handful over a decade. The market simply will never be big enough to support so much change. Bike brands: Band together and create your own standards like other commodity industries and then focus your business models on providing your consumer the best value. Consumers: focus on value not on latest tech if you want to this change.

First Ride: Tantrum Cycles Missing Link Suspension
@Mtbguy87: oh don't get me wrong. I totally agree. I'm just a study of the market. The average consumer has different priorities than the specialized one. In a head to head. All things being equal, the better looking product will be preferred.
