Staff Rides – Aston's European-Made Nicolai GeoMetron Super Bike
As much as I admire Chris Porter, it needs to be pointed out that he's buying into the "sweatshop fallacy" in economics. The workers don't suffer when you buy from them. It pays their bills and feeds their families. When you take that work away, that's when they suffer. It's a well known economic fact, anyone can google it. He is right about the environment though.

Get a bmx if you can't afford a DJ. It's more fun overall and you won't feel bad bashing it about

Bike Check - Matt Jones' Marin Alcatraz
I mean it's still a bike. Subtleties in bb height, stay length, stack height, etc. I agree though, it probably took him a couple hours on his couch and three or four emails with the engineers.

DMR Sled - Review
I'm so tired of hearing complaints about good products that people don't like simply because they are different or not quite as easy to work on. It's so much cleaner. If you learn how to install it correctly, it's not very difficult. The only argument other than "Well I'm not very good at installing it, so it's a pain in the ass", is if you're a privateer racer and time is always of importance and you have to strip your bike under your 8x8 ez-up awning. The list of benefits, other than just looks, is quite long and I'm sure you're all aware of them, so I'll skip over that. I will tell you, it's definitely one less pain for home mechanics. Unfortunately, every pinkbiker seems to think anything they can't handle means that the product is too complicated or something they will "never understand". A pro mechanic can change internal cables in a few minutes longer than external routing, sometimes even faster because there aren't 8 zipties to cut and replace. So, realize that there are benefits to internal cable routing, and you just don't have the practice to make it not a pain, like many other things on these awesome, modern bicycles we ride. Crack yourself a beer or four and take an hour to figure it out. Or, if you don't have time, suck it up and take it to your best local wrench. He will do a better job than you anyway.

YT USA and Cam Zink Part Ways - Updated December 3rd
@LoganKM1982: Bam someone understands! Overall quality of life increases when supply and demand are balanced. However, I will say, you also have to think that shops do serve a purpose - they can offer service that most people, even with the knowledge, won't be able to do at home, and they offer parts immediately in stock, among other things. So sometimes you support a business because you want them to be there to offer you services you value. A lot of shops will get priced out, because they don't offer anything more than an online shop. However, many shops do, and those will be the ones that survive. I buy ammo, dog treats, and other things from a ranch and feed store down the street, because I want that shop to be there when I need something on a Saturday morning in Driggs, ID. They have fine prices, but obviously can't compete with the selection and sales I can find online. If I always buy online, that shop might not be there and I will be SOL when I run out of .22lr on a snowy Friday afternoon, or blow out my leather work gloves and don't want to drive to another town or wait for shipping.
