Well I'm no Bill Gates in terms of fiscal supply, but one or two of my investments are starting to show promise - its taken a lot of hard work to get them there but IF it all works out then I feel I can enjoy the rewards in the form I desire.
If people like myself don't buy parts like these, who will? And if they are not bought, where is the drive for lighter, stronger better parts?
well people like you dont usually buy things like that. usually materials like that (full ceramic bearings) are bought by big companies that have an acutal use for it, and they usually come up with a way that makes manufacturing easier. after time R&D money is made back up, and cost of parts go down; which in turn makes the product more feasable.
right now you can get an frm BB that is as smooth as sh!t on a runny day, for 100 bucks or even a AC BB that has the same weight with a cromoly spindle, how about if you made the spindle alu. knock off another 25 grams, brings the weight down to 115g. now i would be 135 bucks for a BB like that. but not $4100, its insane, and in the end what does it accomplish?
sorry, but i have to agree with superlite on this one. Its crazy for an avg. person to spend 4 grand on a BB - that cost more than my entire bike, which i think is pretty damn good.
But if it floats your boat, MORE POWER TOO YOU. some people think im crazy, for spending $3600 on a bike, i think your crazy for spending $4100 on a BB, i guess its all how you look at it.
PS. let me know what your investing on...
AMD is not doing it for me.
