I hear the E-Bike model is planned for WAKIdesigns Jul 4, at I thought Pinkbike will be releasing a heavy duty xx20 keyboard Boardlife69 Jul 4, at How many bikes could Pinkbike bike if Pinkbike could bike in the pink?
Boardlife69 : Two in the Pink? WAKIdesigns : the extra stability you get on the plus sized model which is xx20 is definitely worth the extra cash for hardcore keyboard bashers like yourself.
WAKIdesigns Jul 5, at I am using xx12 clipped in the desk NYShred Jul 4, at Great article and if you're paying attention you'll notice the curtain being pulled back on carbon frames actually being much cheaper to produce than companies try to lead on, further confirmation that carbon frames are simply a marketing gimmick.
That is especially true when you consider the prices used are not accurate either. RoboDuck Jul 4, at This might creep slightly higher for a brand that is not direct to consumer. Go look at specialized. Components have even more markup due to being made by an outside party like Shimano and then sold to OEM who marks it up accordingly just like a frame.
Milko3D Jul 4, at MikeGruhler Jul 4, at Maybe they should just give us bikes for free then. I don't understand why they need to make a profit. Not an expert myself but I understand there's alot more to the equation then cost of manufacturering.
You are right, they are cheaper overhead. But to order the same number of frames, the companies are still paying more. In addition, for it to be a viable business venture, companies still need to make money. Keeping the same margins on a frame that is that much more expensive, means the bike will be more costly to the consumer as well. No curtains being pulled back really Ntinos Jul 4, at RoboDuck Add the "cost" of crash replacement for carbon frames which is actually already paid You initially pay for two framesets, but you have only one.
USMC Jul 4, at If every company bought these off the shelf productions we would have a ton more comments of "looks like a slash. MikeGruhler : Exactly.
There are a lot more costs than merely production. Because when you buy a bike, your aren't just paying for the bike A few thoughts from a layman who is self-employed.
Because not all carbon is created equally and applied equally throughout the frame lateral, torsional, etc rigidity 3. Reason number four is on vacation.
Because lastly, and most importantly, it's what the market will bear. That said, I'm looking forward to lower prices in the coming years. It's all about the tooling cost. Tooling a mold is a one time payment up front and it is a large large cost. For a frame made out of metal, there really is no tooling to "make. For a carbon frame, you need a mold that is CNCed out of metal to the exact negative of the shape you're making.
So yes, carbon frame are far far more expensive to produce. A plastic part will be much cheaper for "piece price" than that same part made out of sheet metal or CNCed.
That means you have to sell a whole hell of a lot of plastic parts to pay back that molding cost. USMC : well those do not justify the difference in carbon vs aluminium frames.
Your point is totally irrelevant. I would not be surprised if most carbon bikes are created quite equally, which doesn't mean they are created as well as they could be. NYShred - making things from carbon fiber has two major costs associated with it that are more expensive than aluminum: material cost and molds. The raw carbon material s are anywhere from times more expensive than aluminum, and each mold you need front triangle, seat stay, chain stay, rocker link, etc.
While a factory doesn't require you to have a high Minimum Order Quantity MOQ , it doesn't mean that the bike is necessarily cheaper to make. In fact, it is quite the opposite. Carbon fiber products will always be more expensive than aluminum products, no matter the industry. Nobble Jul 4, at WAKIdesigns : I would be very surprised if any manufacturer used robots for welding. A human welder is much more adaptable between frame models, sizes, etc.
Nobble : Specialized and others use robots on any straight line welds. They need humans for when there are bends and curves. I've heard people say it but never seen any evidence of it. The straight lines are on many top tubes that are welded down the middle think when the top tube is two halves that need to be welded together, rather than a round tube. Older Demo 8s and 9s were made this way, for example. WAKIdesigns : Its subpar carbon.
Cheap russian or chinese prepregs. Definitely not aerospace stuff and handlaid mats instead of precision spun and woven around a core. It takes the same amount of time to make an alu frame: h. Alu Jigs are cheap, carbon moulds in Vietnam too. Basically crap and nowhere near as good as it should be. Thats why I stay with alu. WAKIdesigns : But, but, but, steel is real.
I would like to see the other side of the spectrum on being a boutique brand where everything is made in house. Everything else seems to be going back to built and bought local.
My next bike will be made in Europe or UK, two other friends plan on buying the same. My guess is up. Boardlife69 : apart from some Orange models, which other brands are still made in the UK? More resin than carbon fibre. At least they're using relatively high quality alloys with metal frames. Milko3D :. Nobble : Well Milko3D Jul 5, at Hope doesn't make bikes, BTR - no full suspension, Starling - okay. Whyte doesn't make them in house, it says it on their site.
Cotic are made in Taiwan, says so on their website. Can't be bothered checking the rest now, but chances are they are also outsourced. Racer oh, cool, any news on the Hope? That might be quite interesting. Orange are a little vague on their website as to what's made where.
The story of the world's trading networks told through eight everyday products. Most of us remember the day the training wheels came off: learning to balance our weight on two tyres as we propelled ourselves forward, out of the driveway and onto the street. That shared experience was, for more than a hundred years, a very local story: bicycles were once almost exclusively manufactured, assembled and sold within an individual country, perhaps within a single region. Take the UK, 50 years ago — when bottom brackets, cranksets, sprockets, handlebars, shifters, dustcaps and gussets might have all come from a single factory in Nottingham. They would often be sold in a shop nearby and ridden perhaps no further than a few miles from home. Today, that picture is very, very different.
Is this the lightest road bike ever built?

- Ему не стоило напоминать о поразительной способности Мидж Милкен предчувствовать беду. - Мидж, - взмолился он, - я знаю, что ты терпеть не можешь Стратмора, но… - Это не имеет никакого значения! - вспылила. - Первым делом нам нужно убедиться, что Стратмор действительно обошел систему Сквозь строй.
Атакующие линии готовятся к подтверждению доступа. - Господи! - Джабба в отчаянии промычал нечто нечленораздельное. - Чем же отличаются эти чертовы изотопы. Никто этого не знает? - Ответа он не дождался. Техники и все прочие беспомощно смотрели на ВР. Джабба повернулся к монитору и вскинул руки. - Почему среди нас нет ни одного ядерного физика.

У нас осталось всего восемь минут. Мы ищем число, а не произвольный набор букв. - Четыре умножить на шестнадцать, - спокойно сказал Дэвид.

Выпустите меня, или она умрет. Тревор Стратмор заключил в своей жизни достаточно сделок, когда на кону были высочайшие ставки, чтобы понимать: Хейл взвинчен и крайне опасен.
Молодой криптограф загнал себя в угол, а от противника, загнанного в угол, можно ожидать чего угодно: он действует отчаянно и непредсказуемо. Стратмор знал, что его следующий шаг имеет решающее значение. От него зависела жизнь Сьюзан, а также будущее Цифровой крепости. Стратмор также понимал, что первым делом нужно разрядить ситуацию. Выдержав паузу, он как бы нехотя вздохнул: - Хорошо, Грег. Ты выиграл.
Она повернулась. Неужели АНБ прослушивает мои телефонные разговоры.
Сеньор Ролдан уловил некоторое замешательство на другом конце провода. - Ну, на самом деле. Все было совсем не .
Если бы Сьюзан слышала меня сейчас, - подумал. - Я тоже толстый и одинокий. Я тоже хотел бы с ней покувыркаться. Заплачу кучу денег.
В этой встрече было что-то нереальное - нечто, заставившее снова напрячься все его нервные клетки. Он поймал себя на том, что непроизвольно пятится от незнакомцев. Тот, что был пониже ростом, смерил его холодным взглядом.
