Does It Matter Where Your Bike Was Built? - Pinkbike Poll
@davemays: As someone already pointed out, the brand of a car doesn't determine where it is made. Many "American" cars are made out of the country and many Asian cars are actually built in the US. Toyota and Honda make many of their cars here and have plants all over the country. I know that my Tacoma was built in Texas. Its not about where its made. Its about how its designed and the specs its manufactured too that make one car better than another.

Does It Matter Where Your Bike Was Built? - Pinkbike Poll
Spot on man. The facilities over there are just manufacturing the products and doing so based on the specs and standards that are given to them. I always here people say shit like "product A is probably made in the same factory as product B, so they are the same". But that could not be further from the truth. Like someone already pointed out the factories over there can make really good products or they can make shit, but that's all dependent on what the company that hires them wants them to build. They only use the materials and specs they are paid to use.

Tioga's Prototype Glide G3 Tire - Taipei Cycle Show
I was going to post the same thing. They should just make a comp III and see how it works. Talk about a tread design being copied and ripped off.

Microshift's $600 Electric Drivetrain Is Nearly a Real Thing - Taipei Cycle Show
Sounds like a good idea. Just add another $500 to the price.

Microshift's $600 Electric Drivetrain Is Nearly a Real Thing - Taipei Cycle Show
I've always thought the same thing. For as well as today's modern drive trains work I can see this electronic stuff really catching on in the mainstream until the price comes way down. When you can get an XT shifter and derailluer for about $130 and it works perfectly, the average person isn't going to spend 6x that for the electronics.

Eric Barone Smashes Mountain Bike World Speed Record - Video
He's done it on dirt before. Look up his crash from like 10 years ago. His steer tube snaps mid run.

He's attempted and I think might have the record for both doing it on snow and land. The snow if definitely faster.

Opinion: The Table
@highcountrydh: You are full of yourself. Just look at the garbage you have been tying all day. All because someone suggested that people could assemble their own bikes without much an issue. I'm not worried about anyone messing with my bike that the bike mechanics I know and take my bikes too aren't so full of themselves as to get offended that I dared to put my own bike together. They realize that not everyone needs them to do shit like shorten their chain or adjust their brake levers for them (I still can't believe you tried to say that was difficult and should be done by a mechanic) . And they are more than happy to just handle the things I don't do myself.

@highcountrydh: Don't start calling me names just because your butthurt that someone called you out on your "I'm a mechanic and know better than everyone else" bullshit. Grow up. And yes, a tub with a years worth of crust built up on it is a special job, unless you think that is normal.
