Yes they're heavy. And yes they're expensive. But the biggest problem is that they don't come in purple.

Revenue Round Up: Some Success Amidst Falling Sales
@HB208: Agreed. And I think that's why most DTC brands are a bit cheaper. But at the end of the day, there just isn't as much money to be made on financing, service, and parts in the bike industry compared to the auto and motorcycle industries. So bike margins are never going to drop as low as those other industries because there's no other way to recoup that money.

Revenue Round Up: Some Success Amidst Falling Sales
@HB208: Motorcycles are priced like cars. There's essentially no dealer margin built into the price. I think average margin for a new car is somewhere around 2-3%. Motorcycles are a bit higher at maybe 10%. The profit on motorcycles and cars mostly comes from financing, service, and parts. Ebikes are priced like regular bikes. Profit margins somewhere around 30-40%. Solution: put an internal combustion engine into the ebike so that there's a viable, service based sales model.

Patent Round-Up: Fox's Self-Adjusting Suspension, Specialized's Cable-Routing Headset & Shimano's Slimline Brakes
If you read the patent, that's actually the point of the secondary plunger (#54 on the diagram). At least in the patent, it's called a "randomizer." It ensures that the lever pull is different every time, because a consistent brake is a boring brake.
