Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
@Sshredder: what was I meant to learn, that machine shops ‘sharpen’ endmills? Funny stuff.

Opinion: When It Comes To Suspension, Don't Forget The Basics
@Sshredder: Nobody 'sharpens' endmills - I part own a machineshop, we comp our endmill diameter until the tools maximum time in cut is reached and then the endmill goes into recycling, we don't 're-sharpen' the tool as it wouldn't ever perform the same unless sent back to the manufacturer for some kind of 'as new' specific regrind which is very rare to take place. What did you sharpen the endmill with, a file? We don't deal with thousands of a inch here - that 0.025mm which would be a large allowable tolerance for most work. You are talking nonsense - many Asian factories are state of the art and have super high QC levels, who do you think pumps out all of those i-phones? - you get what you pay for though.

@Sshredder: that was the worst description of any decent machine shop and it’s process that I have ever heard. ‘The tool needed sharpening for the 1/4 inch mills’ - where on earth did you work and what were you doing / making? Fence brackets from scrap metal? We haven’t ever resharpened an endmill, just not worth it - nobody does it anymore I think you are confusing mass production, often overseas to companies like Hope, i9 etc etc l

@Sshredder: What about bike parts made by machine-shops?

@lukazy: They don't do it because the majority don't care enough, don't notice or have forks without an issue, so if you added the extra cost onto the fork because of this you would likely upset more people / product managers than you would gain in custom.

Tectonic Components Launches New Made-In-USA Altar Pedal
@JamesPBlaw: Nukeproof and other brand composites are around $45, made by HT or Scada with the same shared internals that $150.00 pedals use. Sure if doing proper DH stuff they probably not quite up to it I haven’t heard of any ‘exploding into a thousand pieces’ before.

Tectonic Components Launches New Made-In-USA Altar Pedal
@Tambo: I'm not sure how you would define a manufacturing defect after a good number of years though vs the realistic longevity of parts used in a harsh environment? I mean say after 5 years the body develops a crack (no huge crash) after being ridden for thousands of miles - would you expect this to be covered as a manufacturing defect or would you say this is to be expected due to fatigue? If parts and bikes lasted forever they would be inevitably worse to ride, heavier, less functional etc - we have to strike a balance, there is sustainability and then unrealistic expectations of engineering and fatigue resistance.

@boopiejones: Most brands offer axles for sale at the kind of price you are suggesting - nobody offers a lifetime warranty on axles because its a ridiculous idea. No axle is un-bendable no matter what the material, no body is impervious to crash / impact damage, fatigue breaks parts after years and years and thousands of miles of use. Personally I think offering a lifetime warranty would be ridiculous which is likely why hardly anything comes with one.

@boopiejones:Would you want lifetime warranty on bending a spindle, breaking a pin or wearing out the internals too?
