Tech Randoms: Mont-Sainte-Anne DH World Cup 2018
Even if they did replace parts, this competitive mindset is what drives technology. Win races Sunday, sell bikes Monday. They are still, at the end of the day, going to have to make it reliable enough for the consumer; otherwise, their reputation will be damaged and the company will not be sustainable. This might sound arbitrary but look at F1 tire technology. They replace those tires so often. Would they be able to engineer them to grip so well in a variety of track conditions if they didn't? I'm sure those engines are rebuilt frequently too. A lot of the technology though has trickled down to those who race at tracks on the weekends, anywhere from a Porsche 911 fully tracked-out to a Mazda Miata with minimal modifications.

Fasst Company Announces Flexx Handlebar
I think this is a poor comment, but agree $500 is too much. The truth is sometimes you need to sacrifice compliance and comfort for performance. Ever feel how stiff a pro's suspension is? These aren't motocross bikes where the bikes already weigh around 200lbs, suspension has a lot of room and large circuits and prices can be up to $8,000 for pro suspension. Our suspension is cheap compared to so many other sports and incredibly light. They are talking about 1/5 of a pound in the article like its a big deal! LOL! From a healthcare professional's perspective, I think this could really help with longevity of joints, especially if you ride a lot. Think about the force those elastomers may displace from your joints. I am pretty young (a little less than 30 years old) and don't feel much even when riding downhill (Whistler A-Line braking bumps and cases on Crabapple hits included), if any pain now riding, but I know wear and tear on the body happens. Just because you don't feel it the premature wear on your body, doesn't mean it's not happening. I think these bars are an innovative idea. I wonder if it influences handling characteristics negatively though (hard cornering/getting hung up a little in a gnarly rock garden, etc). The price just seems really inaccessible though for a lot of people. I know R&D, marketing costs, lack of large quantity of demand/production are involved, but I have a real hard time justifying $500. Rad idea and cool execution, but that price will stop me.
