The Syndicate's Prototype DH Bars (& Something New from Josh Bryceland) - Burgtec House Show 2019
@BenPea: Probably in a simmilar time. While hands have a lower coeficient of friction the sweat could degrade rubber.

Review: Unno's Dash is Ultra-Exotic, Ultra-Efficient, & Ultra-Expensive
@zonoskar: You're right but I'm saying that the price in the US isn't 5600 but less (due to not having taxes) so the US price is around 4750$ + import fees (if they exist). So it's an absolute price.

Review: Unno's Dash is Ultra-Exotic, Ultra-Efficient, & Ultra-Expensive
@zonoskar: not really, european prices include vat while US don't. I don't know how big/small us import taxes are but in the end it shouldn't cost that much more in the states. And yes the frame only is quite expensive but builds are more than fairly priced.

Field Test: Devinci Spartan 29
@dodobob: 1. economy of scale 2. decent margins for salers (cars and motorbikes have just minimum margins) 3. somewhere down the line in car manufacturing someone isn't paid enough, probably around raw materials extraction etc. In reality you can ask yourself how on earth can a car cost so little. And yes bikes cost a lot but the materials aren't the cheapest.

@brianpark: Well 29er DD DHF's in WT 2.5" don't exist yet. They come in 2.3" but I don't think any manufacturer puts them on.

8 Modern Downhill Pants Ridden & Rated
I bought some Endura Singletrack trousers for around 80€ a few years ago and they are still going strong. Magnetic front pockets and one also has an inner zipped compartment, front zipped vents and long zippers for easier pads removing. Now looking at their site I think there is an updated model but have no idea how it compares to the old one.

Rest in Peace: The Rise & Fall of Interbike
@WAKIdesigns: From a European point of view how can CRC still alive when they have normal prices 25-30% higher than big german shops (bike24 etc) and than sell out the stock for 35-40% lower than others. And their components stock is second to none.

Field Test: Stumpjumper vs Remedy vs Process vs Bronson vs SB150
@skeen95: In Europe it's the other way around. You need to pay half as much for any of them to get simmilar components. (maybe Spesh gets close but only on carbon models).
