That's not you being a cheapskate, that's you being reasonable.

Transition Introduces Two Brand New Bikes
Because they rock? Because they make you feel like a superstar merely riding your local trails? Or maybe because they can kick your arse if you're lazy? You can tell I love them too. Flow trails, chunky natural trails, all day explorations, you name it, they can handle it... if you can!

Leatt DBX 3.0 All-Mountain Helmet – First Look – Sea Otter 2017
Not a scam, it's just the fact that many people want a good feel of the bars. Myself included. The downside is that, indeed, one crash and the gloves go to the bin. That's why I only buy gloves on sale at 1/3 of the price. They are disposable if you ride a lot and crash often.

Spot's New 29er Has a Carbon Fiber Leaf Spring – Sea Otter 2017
I suspect the use of TexTreme is the main reason for the pricetag, I've seen the same happen with windsurfing equipment - board with "plain" carbon construction - 1700 euros. Same board with TexTreme layup - add another 1000. It is supposed to use less resin for the same weight, so overall you have a better fiber to resin ratio. That means either increased strength at the same weight, or the same strength at a lower weight (compared to a normal carbon lay up)

Day One Bikes and Tech - Sea Otter 2017
Suspension forks on road(ish) bikes look ugly. "Road" bikes are beatifull in their own way, in part due to their clean, elegant looks. A traditional suspension fork spoils that. An inverted one would possibly be more tolerable. Anyway, it's pretty clear that a development has started with all the gravel bike experimentation that will result in... the modern XC race bike!

Transition Introduces Two Brand New Bikes
I always look at geo tables myself to get an estimation of the fit, but sometimes numbers are not enough to draw the right conclusion. My current bike is waaay longer in size S than what I used to ride, yet the claimed range includes people shorter than me. On paper it looked like it would never fit. However,I trusted the manufacturer's recommendation and ordered through lbs. When the bike arrived I adjusted the seatpost height, saddle position, stem height and bar roll by feel. Then measured from the center of the bar to to saddle nose. Did the same for my old bike, the difference was only 0.5cm. Could never have guessed from the numbers.

Tech From the Pits - EWS Round 2, Tasmania
@jaame: That's something I agree with, although I love 1x for "normal" rides. If budget was not a problem I'd certainly try Shimano's single shifter 2x Di2 XTR. Seems like a best of both worlds approach.

Tech From the Pits - EWS Round 2, Tasmania
@chantalfelten: I have a zefal side loading cage that cost 5 euros... that's msrp. It's thermoplastic, light as they come and if it breaks I'll just go and get another. Works fine with my 500ml elite waterbottle and my 750ml podium big chill.
