I think that the best equivalent to all of this is food. The food you get in a restaurant is designed to be prepared en masse, then portioned and plated to order - it's great food, normally done consistently. Weightweenies are like enthusiastic home cooks - they spend hours slaving over long recipes that are simply not commercially viable. Is the end result any better - sometimes yes, mostly no. It is certainly more expensive and time consuming, definitely gives the cook (or rider) a sense of satisfaction - but is usually not done to consistent standards. When done badly it is dangerous. I draw the same analogy with 'bike fits' - there are a lot that are done poorly, and many of them offer conflicting advice.
In essence, the stupidest thing i've ever heard at a bike shop, or any shop is still 'the customer is always right'.

Just today my friend told me that he had the shop mechanic tell him he could put a GXP crankset in his BB30 bike, but that the reducers would have to be glued into the frame and are impossible to remove
