I just once want someone to show how to change out fork oil in the dark on a cold winter evening on the front porch(that the missus is still pissed about all the chain lube drips being on) with the wrong tools and stuff falling between the slats into the leaves underneath and digging around in the leaves with a tiny headlamp and refrigerator magnet desperately hoping to find the piece of crap metal (was it even steel) so you can ride with you buddies stupid early the next day.

Who thought it is a good idea to use 50 shades of grey and Orange/More Orange/Kinda Red colours for those graph lines? :D

Otherwise it's super interesting stuff. Especially the trends over time.
Also funny to see how much money US people get thrown at them. My bike is above average value but my income is way lower than you have in "under $$$".

With everyone making the same tires and there being so many competitors, why haven't we seen the cost of tires come down to a reasonable amount for what the product actually is? Have tire companies formed like an OPEC like organization to keep prices high?

One thing I'd love to see Vital start doing is some form of rolling resistance test. This should be easy to replicate and is super important when picking a tire.

Loic and Finn switch to Maxxis in 2019 and dominate. Gwin, Mulally, Moir switch to Kenda, not so much.

Specialized pants on both of them. #teamrumors2020

EDIT: maybe they're just his friend's pants, since, you know, he 'forgot his kit' or something.

The chains are designed exactly for the chainrings and cassette. Look at a SRAM Eagle chain and look at a KMC 12 speed chain. Not same design. This is also why Eagle chains and chainrings are lasting 2 years. Mate a KMC chain to save $20 and eat away your rings and cassette faster.

'Democrats, or Republicans' was not mentioned. I hope you do see the relevance of the cost of cycling goods to a cycling site though. News that will most likely affect everyone should just be seen as that, news, not bias. Plus, this article had good arguments for and against, which should be the standard of quality news. Better to be educated than insulated.

I'm all for e-bikes if the rider has some sort of injury, disability, or any other legitimate reason that makes the e-bike his or her only option to get out there and rip some trails. But all I see on my local trails (which are closed to e-bikes) are completely healthy and young looking riders on e-bikes who are just too lazy to pedal uphill under their own power. And more often than not their trail etiquette is completely lacking... full Jerry mode.
