@YouHadMeAtDrugs: I have the Emerald and its great. I don't notice any issues with stiffness. With that said I'm not a WC DH rider and am not pushing my fork anywhere near as hard as those guys.

YT Industries Releases Autobiographical Video, New Branding & 2018 Range
@74NZ: I didn't mean to imply the bikes weren't good. By all accounts they are. And that is really my point. That if they make good bikes for a good price, thats why people should buy them. Not because of some marketing video or because they have convinced people how genuine they are.

@resinrider: that’s what happens when you needlessly express ratios as percentages and end up talking about percentages of percentages.

Why do they even express it as a percentage anyway? Displaying it as a ratio makes more sense.

Just keep in mind that everything from the story they told in the video to the boss saying he doesn't give fuck, is all part of a marketing pitch. No one knows how genuine this guy or his company really is. They are simply trying to sell you that image in a 15 minute long commercial here.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@oronaut: I just dont get it. Why is it so hard for some people to just simply not use derogatory or offensive terms. I get that people used to use some terms more freely, myself included, but times change. There’s a lot of shit that used to be socially acceptable in the past that we simply don’t do now. Do these words mean so much to people that they can’t imagine going through life without being able to call someone a faggot? If a word offends a fairly large group of people, don’t fucking use it. If you continue to use it knowing it’s likely offending people then you are just an asshole. And BTW, it’s pretty much guaranteed that all these people have or will have gay family members or friends, wether they are aware of it or not.

@plyawn: for sure but I’m not strapping my $800 phone to my helmet or a long stick and riding through trees in a snowstorm.

No Fly Zone: GoPro Leaving the Drone Business
@onemanarmy: That is again not necessarily true. It all depends on the type of option/compensation. A regular stock option is taxed upon exercise, not sale. Upon exercising the option, he would be taxed on the difference between the exercise price and the FMV of the stock, at ordinary rates, regardless of whether he holds onto it or not. Then any gain or loss that occurs after that, from the FMV on the exercise date, would then be taxed on cap gains rates. Along the line of what you are saying though, he likely wouldn't even exercise an option right now because the stock is at an all time low. Any options he has would likely be underwater. If he was given straight shares of stock in lieu of cash, those would be taxed at ordinary rates as soon as they are granted or vested.

@femto505: Not really. Depends on the type of stock plan/option. In many cases when a CEO is given stock or stock options the value of the stock or the option is taxed at ordinary rates. Capital gains would only apply to the possible increase in value of the stock after they receive it.

That’s the same reason the camera sales are down too. The new models are really awesome but the average buyer (who drives sales) isn’t going to buy a new camera every year. Most people that want one have one, and the camera that is a few years old is still fine for the recreational user who just wants to film their ski runs with their friend or whatever.
