I thought $10 was a small price to pay for the amount of time that someone has invested, I purchased it and can say I don't feel ripped off.

My honest question is this: How is this of any authority when the sample size is small?
For example: did he/she test Yaban Chains? What about KMC's top offerings? What about pulley wheels - did he/she cover all manufacturers? (I doubt he/she did. Spend a week on this forum and I'm sure you'll be familiar with more brands and models of chainrings than may have been tested. That's just chainrings.) In the "lubes" testing - what about lubes that are not available in the tester's market? There are lubes that are sold in Europe but not in North America, for example. Were those tested?
EDIT: further reading, found that tester did test multiple components per manufacturer-model combos, however I still believe that the offerings are still limited.
You're right it is a small sample group and a small range, but everything has to start somewhere. When you purchase the report he goes on to explain that the report is hopefully going to fund the testing. So the more people that buy the report and don't repost it somewhere the more it increases his ability to do more testing. I'd even be willing to purchase it again when there are more updates just to support the project.
