Hey those are our store colours you punks!

Dunbar might argue otherwise.

MEC vs LBS - A Firsthand Experience

A lot of shops do not carry particular items because customers have shown they are unwilling to pay a price for that item that will allow them to stay in business. There is no point bringing in an item that will only ever sell once it’s put on sale. With the advent of online shops, price matching everything can end a LBS. So if you are wondering why your LBS has such shit selection, it’s because too many people are buying online or actively participating in the race to the bottom on price. When all you spend in your LBS is time, there is no money to spend on all the expensive inventory that you will never end up buying anyways because it’s cheaper online. This is not to say that the brands that sell their products online are free from blame. Personally I think brands should start distributing themselves and cut out the middle man entirely so that small shops can run business the same as MEC (distributor free).

Stuff that doesn't suck from INTERBIKE (updated!)

Those all mountain helmets from Lazer look decent. Kinda like Giro Czar graphics with a Bontrager Lithos shape. Wouldn't mind seeing a review to see how they stack up.

Dirt Demo at Interbike 2012: Gear, Gear, Gear...

I would really like to see a review of the new Giro Jacket shoe to see how they stack up with the competition. And a review of the E-13 LG1+ pedals to see if the spin control and wear plates really make a difference on the trail.

five tens vs 2013 giro jacket

What does everyone think of the new Giro Jacket shoe? Is it worth giving up the Five Tens for or is the Stealth Rubber still the best way to go for riding the shore?
