But first press all your fingertips together, hold them under your nose, and take a deep breath. I really need to feel like you honestly believe the absolute bullshit you're about to spew out of your mouth if there's to be any chance of me buying your services.

Round Up: 13 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
@RBalicious: I actually thought I was being conservative as I know a lot of people who spend much more. Granted I live in Issaquah where everything is expensive, but if you want organic/grass fed/etc its easily $200 a week for a 180lb athletic male.

What's this I hear about you having problems with your TPS reports? Didn't you get that memo?

Round Up: 13 Bike Industry Jobs Available Right Now
@vinay: Yes, living costs in desirable areas is very high in the US. Boulder is a very popular 'outdoorsy' town for skiing, mountain biking, etc. Most people will need $2K usd per month for rent/mortgage alone. If the company isn't covering health insurance then add another $4-600 depending on your health and coverage (no universal healthcare in the US). Colorado is widely spaced out, you have to drive a lot to get anywhere for said 'outdoorsy' fun so factor in average $200 per month for gas and car maintenance. Car + renters/home owners insurance roughly $200. Colorado is cold in the winter and warm in the summer so utilities will be pretty high depending on how well insulated your living space is, so factor at least $150 per month. If you're a cyclist and riding regularly, factor $800 for food unless you want to eat crap. Phone, internet, subscriptions, etc $100. That already adds up to more than the monthly takehome you'd get from the average of their advertised pay range. So you'd have zero left for doing any of the fun 'outdoorsy' stuff that is the whole motivation for living there in the first place. Considering that you are managing an entire brand(s), this seems low. Perhaps there is an incentive structure that they did not mention that rewards certain performance metrics.

2023 Pinkbike Awards: Innovation of the Year Nominees
@ultimatist: I'm open to belt drive if the tension can be maintained, but I'm in the PNW so conditions could be a factor. I'd like the option but not to be limited to it as my only choice. Belts work on Harleys, but dirt bikes run chains. Other big part of this is the potential for mass-acceptance of gearboxes in general if they can sort them out with proper shifting. If there's enough demand for this layout then other big players will have to look at integrating the drive and gearing as well, which could lead to general market demand for quality gearboxes on regular bikes.

100%. Its a fundamental phase shift in Ebike layout/construction, creating a new category that sits properly between bicycle and motorcycle. Having all the weight on the front end, only one cog so the frame designer can maximize the kinematics without having to consider chain angle/gearing, big power, big battery, electronic shifting gets rid of the clunky 2-cable system, etc. I've been saying for years that I won't buy an Ebike until they use a dirt bike layout, and now that appears to be happening. If they can partner with a quality North American based brand, I might have to put my money where my mouth is. With how fast Ebikes have captured the bike-buying public, this has to be the most relevant innovation insofar as how it stands to completely change what Ebikes look and ride like.

First Ride: 2024 Trek Slash
Hope HB916 has nearly identical geometry and specs, made in UK, looks way better, and comes with full Hope/Ohlins kit from the factory for LESS money than the top Trek build. Shop wisely my friends.
