Check Out: 9 Environmentally-Minded MTB Products
@Keegansamonster: If you parse the words carefully enough you'll notice that he never actually says what they are doing. Only what is possible to do, and what their "current focus" is. I'll stand by my calling out of greenwashing. Someone show me a product or set of products that are actually being made from recycled bike frames or wheels, and the facility or process that accomplishes it and I'll shut up.

I asked the same question about the CK recyclable carbon rims and never got a clear answer and have the same question about GG frames. Does this stuff actually get recycled in practice? Their own website just says: " The material is economical to recycle. None of our waste is put into the ocean (duh, we live in Colorado). The material is safe for handling during the layup process. 90% less sanding and finishing work is needed, minimizing air particulates. Powder coating does not emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) like wet paint. Working conditions are A-OK (after-work beers, anyone?) Short supply chain dramatically reduces the carbon footprint—even the raw material is made in the US! " and that the material is "economical to recycle" but nowhere does it ever say that it actually * is * recycled. And just that it doesn't end up in the ocean. So..... landfill then? Either it's recycled or it isn't. If a company doesn't say so then the omission is the answer to my question I guess

Burning Question: Why Are So Many Bike Manufacturers Putting Cables Through the Headset?
@AndrewHornor: I mean, maybe there's a silver lining in all this that it'll inspire brake manufacturers to actually come up with a really good quick-release system between brake lines and levers. Naw, probably not because it would add 12 grams and $6

Review: Chris King's US-Made MTN30 Carbon Wheels
@mikekazimer: Interesting! But even CSS Composites doesn't actually say that they recycle the stuff: "Automated cutting means we have no wasted material, and recycling FusionFiber is as simple as shredding it into short fibers. These fibers can be directly repurposed into new compression-molded parts for other commercial applications with zero waste." i.e. "these fibers CAN be directly repurposed"... but are they? I know, I'm a suspicious/cynical SOB

CK website sez that with the lifetime warranty you ship a busted wheel to them and they send you a new one and then they send the old one off to be recycled. I'd be curious to know exactly how and where that happens. Not saying they're lying but my greenwashing-detector is flickering a little bit...
