Rapha Expands Mountain Bike Apparel With Autumn/Winter Line
@inside-plus: Whatever, dude. It’s Inside+. Just because you can say “I’m Rick James!” doesn’t make you Rick James.

@notoutsideceo: Why stop at payments, when one could monetize the asset via a security token offering taking the value to the moon via a modest pump and dump boiler room operation. Apparently Martha Stewart is cool again and is into NFTs and Snoop Dog, she definitely needs to be on the team as the Inside+ ambassador.

@notoutsideceo: That is brilliant, man. For your convenience I've acquired the Inside+ URL for you. I'm sure we can work something out.

@notoutsideceo: Mr. Outside, I would be remiss if were not to direct your attention to the recently revised masthead of this fine publication where you will be illuminated of the fact that indeed there is an asset called Peloton in your media portfolio which is distinctly has no relation to the exercycle of the same name. It is a road bicycling magazine, you may also be interested to know, depicting scantly clad road cycling aficionados pretending they have VO2 max values of note. Cheers, good day.

Nerding Out: Why You Shouldn't Worry Too Much About Weight
@Ttimer: And then people would buy two models of the same bike, one small and one large, swap out the light components from the small to the large bike and resell the small bike with the heavy parts. The price/tier model can only be broken laterally by buying from a low overhead brand. I've noticed buying entry level bikes for my kids that bike brands really just don't give a shit and spec lead pipes and pot metal where they could easily save a ton of weight for cheap for a more enjoyable bike and create a rider for life the process. But, nope.

Industry Digest: Trek's Direct to Consumer Box, Low Salaries, Sea Otter & More
Right, so a quick look around the web and I per hour labor rates between $40 and $70. So a third of that is somewhere between $13 and $20/hour. What is weird is that shops often have a fixed priced menu, meaning they are being nice if a job takes a bit longer. It is interesting to me that suspension service businesses/factory service charge the full weight of the work. Dirt Labs is charging anywhere around $200 for shock service, for instance. I think the LBS could and should raise prices. I've worked in Environmental Consulting which is dealing with the problem that many services are being commodified driving down revenues and I have been arguing its professional services and that the industry needs to be raising prices as industry. LBS perhaps should reframe the value of the service. As more brands go DTC that will happen anyway.

@JoeHelvoigt: You're right, only work I don't own the tools for (headsets and rear shock rebuilds). Otherwise, I do my own work.
