Push Industries Releases Nine.One Inverted Fork
@RadBartTaylor: it's confusing because in their own press release Push says it's both "made in Colorado" and "manufactured here" - so is it made there or manufactured there? Or is it assembled? It's all really hard to tell as a consumer without somehow getting access to a bill of materials, which I understand is subject to change at any time. I want to buy domestically-made products whenever possible when the performance of those products is comparable to internationally-made products and when the price is reasonable. Wolf Tooth is a good example of this, in my mind at least. Paul roadie stuff seems to be this way too.

Push Industries Releases Nine.One Inverted Fork
@olafthemoose: @redbarttaylor: I was mistaken about Cane Creek - I didn't realize their NC factory is more of an assembly location. I'm also sorry for not knowing the exact, legalese definitions of "made" vs "manufactured," both of which Push uses in their press release above. I know "assembled" has its own minimum criteria for legal advertising. I guess I should personally apologize for even daring to mention Push and MRP in the same breath. I've never had an MRP but I know they say they're made domestically and I know I had a great time on my hardtail when it had a Yari.

Push Industries Releases Nine.One Inverted Fork
I've become a lot more picky about buying domestic made shit when I can - my car's made in Ohio with a 1up Rack, I wear made in USA New Balances & Allen Edmonds shoes daily with Darn Tough socks, all that good stuff. There's no way in hell I could justify $2,600 for a fork, of any kind. That price is taking the piss. Cane Creek and MRP make forks in America that are price-competitive with Rockshox/Fox/Manitou/DVO. This fork is unjustifiable if money is a concern for you at all, full stop. There's nothing inherently wrong with it existing because trying new shit and making stuff here is expensive...but I drive a Honda, not an Escalade, and a 1 1/4" receiver can't pull an Airstream anyway.

I don't care if Akio Toyoda personally put that truck together, no Tacoma is worth $56,000

They're going to ruin F1 coverage with in-race ads too, aren't they?

First Ride: The 2024 Pivot Switchblade Gets Updated, Not Overhauled
The $6000 Scott Ransom from last week is an SX/NX build with DB8 brakes, and annoying cable routing. I can put up with SLX/XT, superboost, and a Grip damper for $400 more.

Forge & Bond Release New Budget-Minded Thermoplastic Wheelset
Respectfully disagree, the durability and performance/$ ratio of wheels like the Line Elite 30s is hard to beat, even with nice aluminum wheelsets (I weigh ~92kg ready to ride). I'm not going back to aluminum wheels unless I get a sponsorship.

Pinkbike Poll: How Many Derailleurs Have You Actually Destroyed While Riding?
12 speed GX Eagle and SLX are real hard to beat for $/performance/weight/durability if you need 12 speeds and you're a 2-3 times per week rider. Maybe not for e bikes though. XT 11 speed and a gucci Wolf Tooth 28t front chainring is looking real purty lately though..
