It's been a thing for 20 years since Cannondale came out with the electric lockout lefty/headshock. It's just gotten better.

Reply to Horse dancing is still an Olympic sport… 8/3/2021 12:09 AM

Exactly. I appreciate it exists, but as a shop mechanic you've basically got to start charging a sliding scale for work being done. For example, changing a cable/housing on an external bike vs an internal bike vs an integrated bike that basically requirements ... more »
